Veteran Daily Democrat sports editor Jim Hopkins is a patient at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne after suffering a heart attack Monday afternoon.
Hopkins underwent a cardiac catheterization on Tuesday morning and results showed some damage to his heart but doctors are optimistic about his recovery. He said he was feeling much better and he was hoping to be discharged from the hospital today or Friday at the latest.
Friends may send cards and letters to Hopkins at his 328 S. First Street residence in Decatur, but phone calls are currently being discouraged.
