Prairie Home Companion star Garrison Keillor, 67, suffered a minor stroke over the weekend, reports Minnesota Public Radio. Doctors at the Minnesota hospital where Keillor is being treated expect to release him on Friday. The Star Tribune says fans were alerted to his condition on the pubradio host’s Facebook page that reportedly said, “Garrison Keillor has landed in the hospital, one more pitiful giant with tubes in his hands, wearing a tiny hospital gown, peeing into a container, and endlessly reciting his correct name and date of birth. Have Mercy.” That was later changed to: “Garrison Keillor is enjoying a sunny day at an undisclosed location in southern Minnesota.” Keillor said in a statement he expects to be ready for the show’s season opener on Sept. 26.
