Family member: Mayor showing “some improvement”

Ken Grey, brother-in-law of Granbury Mayor Rickie Pratt, said Sunday evening (Dec. 30) that Pratt is showing “some improvement” in the neuro-ICU at a Fort Worth hospital, where he was taken after suffering a severe stroke early Thursday. “He has some awareness. He does have his eyes open,” said Grey, adding that the mayor is not really eating, per se, but is “taking nourishment.” Grey said that physical therapy will be needed for his brother-in-law and as yet there is no information on when he will be able to come home. “This is going to (take) some time for him to recover,” he said. Grey said that the outpouring of prayers and concern for Pratt has been “immensely appreciated” by Pratt’s wife, Janet, and the rest of the family.
