Loretta Lynn’s sister asked her fans to keep praying for the legendary country singer after she suffered a stroke last week and had to be hospitalized.

Lynn’s younger sister, Crystal Gale, thanked fans for their prayers and well wishes Wednesday and encouraged them to “keep them coming” without giving much information about how her 85-year-old sister was doing after she suffered a stroke last Thursday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. (RELATED: Loretta Lynn Forced To Cancel Concert After Taking A Nasty Spill)

“Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes for Loretta. Keep them coming. We are lucky in this day and age to have wonderful doctors and nurses taking care of her. Plus they have to put up with our dramatic and crazy family and friends,” Gale tweeted in a note.  (RELATED: This Huge Country Star Just Revealed The Republican She’s Supporting For President)

“She is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery,” a message posted last week on Lynn’s website continues to read. “Loretta, who just celebrated her 85th birthday, has been advised by her doctors to stay off the road while she is recuperating. Regrettably, upcoming scheduled shows will be postponed.”

The country singer is probably best known for her 1970 hit song “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” a song about her own life experience growing up in Kentucky.

Last year, Lynn was forced to cancel several shows after she fell and bruised her ribs.

Her next album is expected out in August.

There has been no comment yet from the singer’s rep on her current condition.
