Coach Wooden Resting Comfortably In Hospital

By Bruin Basketball Report

Coach John Wooden, is doing well on his second day in a local hospital. The name of the hospital is being withheld at the request of the family.

Coach Wooden, 97, was hospitalized on Friday with a hairline fracture of his left wrist and a fractured left collarbone he sustained in a fall in his condo on Thursday night. His wrist is in a cast and his arm will have to be in a sling when he leaves the hospital.

Nan Muehlhausen, Coach Wooden’s daughter, said her father was in good spirits and doing well on Saturday afternoon. He has had visits from numerous family members, including son Jim, who saw his father this morning.

“Dad is doing well. He had a good night, his vital signs are good and his spirits are good. He has been joking around with the family,” said Muehlhausen.

“We anticipate he will in the hospital until Monday. Dad has had a couple of blood transfusions because the doctors found he was anemic, but the transfusions will take care of that and Dad will be fine. We expect him to make a full recovery.”

Muehlhausen again requested that people not attempt to call or visit the hospital so that Coach Wooden can rest.
