Minnesota humorist and author Garrison Keillor suffered a minor stroke and has been at the Mayo Clinic's St. Marys Hospital in Rochester since Monday evening.
Keillor, 67, "is up and moving around, speaking sensibly, working at a laptop, and it's expected he'll be released on Friday," Mayo spokesman Karl Oestreich said Wednesday. "He plans to resume a normal schedule next week."
In 2001, Keillor underwent open-heart surgery at Mayo for what was described as a common valve repair.
A Facebook page for the host of radio's "A Prairie Home Companion" initially reported his hospitalization on Tuesday, unleashing dozens of get-well wishes in response.
