An Update On Jacques Demers’ Health

from CBC,

Former NHL coach and Canadian Senator Jacques Demers is in stable condition after being rushed to hospital on Saturday.

Radio-Canada and his employer, the sports television channel RDS, had earlier reported he had suffered a stroke — his second in six months.

But his wife, Deborah Anderson, told a Montreal newspaper last night that tests showed he was in fact suffering from an infection.

"He's fine, he underwent some tests and everything suggests that it is not a stroke, but an infection," she told Le Journal de Montréal.

Senator and former Montreal Canadiens coach Jacques Demers is back at home after going to hospital Saturday.

His Senate office would only confirm that Demers, 72, was at home Sunday, but didn’t provide any details about the reason he went to hospital.
