Howe had been staying with his daughter, Cathy Purnell, in Lubbock Texas. He was hospitalized on Monday amid fears that he may have suffered a second major stroke in the past five weeks, according to M-Live.

Gordie’s son, Murray Howe, spoke to M-Live earlier Tuesday.

“We are awaiting test results at this time to determine whether he has had a new stroke,” Howe’s son Murray told M-Live. “He is responding and resting comfortably with family while in hospital currently. He is not in an ICU.”

Howe suffered a stroke on October 26, but had taken some steps forward in his recovery in the weeks that followed.
