A former Bush administration official’s health condition was upgraded Monday to “stable” following a stroke he suffered, according to his family.
Tom Ridge, 75, suffered a stroke at his home in Bethesda, Maryland last Wednesday. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital for treatment, Ridge spokesman Steve Aaron said.

Ridge was conscious when he arrived at the emergency department and later underwent a successful procedure to remove a blood clot, his family said in a statement.
His wife, former Pennsylvania First Lady Michele Ridge, said the family is “hopeful for a full recovery.”
