Lawmakers want update on Ophelia Ford

State lawmakers want to know how Ophelia Ford's health is.

Tennessee Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey sent Ford's attorney a letter asking for an update on his client.

Ford warned colleagues she would miss several weeks of the current session because she is sick.

Her attorney sent Ramsey a letter promising an update. Ramsey replied he's looking forward to the "promised report."

Last week a Memphis hospital issued a statement saying Ford is in stable condition but needs to remain hospitalized.
