Etta James Condition Improving

Legendary jazz singer Etta James who was hospitalized on December 21st has reportedly been taken off the respirator according to her manager.

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Etta James' manager says the terminally ill blues singer is breathing on her own after being taken off a respirator.
Lupe De Leon says Friday that the change in her condition is great news and that the singer's blood pressure is normal.
De Leon says James was put on a respirator when she was hospitalized in Southern California on Dec. 21 because she was having trouble breathing.
James has been diagnosed with terminal leukemia and is suffering from dementia. She has been receiving mostly at-home care.
Earlier this month, a judge set aside $350,000 for her medical care.
 Etta James, who is best known for her classic hit, "At Last", has been sick for a while now. Let's pray that she pulls through this okay. Too many greats have passed before their time these past few years.
