Etta James Still in the Hospital


*R&B legend Etta James remains hospitalized in Southern California as she recovers from sepsis, a life-threatening illness usually caused by a body’s response to a bacterial infection – in James’ case, a urinary tract infection.

As previously reported, her son, Donto James, said Friday that his mother had been at the Riverside Community Hospital for about a week.

He said his mom had entered a drug treatment program to shake a dependency on painkillers and was transferred to the hospital when her condition worsened.

James’ manager Lupe De Leon said Monday that the 72-year-old is in stable condition, but he doesn’t know when she will be released.
