Baxley in therapy to regain movement

MONTGOMERY (AP) — Former Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley, who suffered a stroke at Thanksgiving, goes through intense therapy three days a week in Birmingham to try to restore full movement to her left side.

The former Democratic gubernatorial candidate said her left hand and arm aren't functioning properly and she must use a cane to walk.

She is undergoing therapy at the Lakeshore Rehabilitation Hospital in Birmingham, she told a newspaper on Sunday. "They put you through the mill down there," Baxley said.
