REAL NEWS: Former United Progressive Party Minister Hilson “Brother B” Baptiste is said to be in high spirits as he undergoes rehabilitation after suffering a stroke.
Initial reports, last month, indicated that Baptiste had suffered a stroke that had left him unable to speak; and he was hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit of the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.
Subsequently, the former MP was moved to a regular ward as he continued his recovery.
Now, some four weeks later, he is undergoing physical rehabilitation and is said to be making steady improvements. He has regained some degree of movement and independence.
On Monday, September 11, the UPP candidate for St. Mary’s South, Kelvin “Shugy” Simon, paid a visit to Baptiste, whom he considers a mentor.
Simon says the former minister was in high spirits and is following the instructions of his healthcare advisors.
In the meantime, Baptiste indicates that he is grateful for the level of care he has received and for the prayers and well wishes of family, friends, supporters and former constituents.
He also has offered words of encouragement to Simon, as the countdown to the by-election in St. Mary’s South ccontinues. Former UPP Political Leader Harold Lovell also checked in on his colleague, on Sunday, and confirmed that Baptiste is, indeed, in good spirits.
