Sen. Edith Prague is in the hospital after suffering a minor stroke on Christmas Eve. 

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman have just sent get-well wishes to Prague. 

“We offer Sen. Prague our hopes for her full and quick recovery," they wrote in a press release issued this afternoon. "We have reached out to the Senator to let her know she is in our thoughts and prayers and are pleased that she is in good spirits as she begins the healing process.  Senator Prague is a much beloved figure at the Capitol -- an outstanding advocate for her district, and a staunch ally and friend to seniors across the state.  We send her our well-wishes, offer her family our support, and hope for her speedy return to the Senate.”

The Hartford Courant reports that Prague's spokesman, Lawrence Grotheer, said she "was not feeling well" following some "minor outpatient surgery" before Christmas.

The Courant went on to say that Prague was planning to attend an event in Montville but her illness had forced her to cancel, Grotheer said.

Prague, who is 86, was first elected to the state Senate in 1994, after serving for eight years in the House of Representatives. She is a Democrat, representing   the 19th District, which includes Andover, Bozrah, Columbia, Franklin, Hebron, Lebanon, Ledyard, Lisbon, Sprague, Norwich and a portion of Montville.
