ROMNEY, W.Va. (AP) - Former West Virginia Secretary of State and U.S. Rep. Ken Hechler says his health is improving and he hopes that he will soon be released from the hospital.

Ken Hechler’s wife, Carol Hechler, said the 101-year-old was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday because he was experiencing some internal bleeding and had a seizure. He was eventually transferred to another hospital in Maryland.

Carol Hechler said her husband was in a very serious condition on Thursday. But she said Friday that his health had improved significantly and he’s “happy and perky and anxious to be home.”

Ken Hechler said he’s “feeling good for a guy who’s only 101.” He said he hopes the doctor will let him return to his home in Romney on Saturday.
