An illness kept Sen. Debbie Regala away from Olympia Wednesday and today, but the state senator said today by phone from Tacoma General Hospital that she is doing fine.

Regala, D-Tacoma, was hospitalized Tuesday evening and said she expects to go home as soon as tonight. She could be back at the Legislature as early as Friday.

She preferred to keep the specifics of her illness private but said that “everything’s OK” after receiving medical care.

UPDATE 4:53 p.m.: Regala said she’s back home and will be in Olympia in the morning.

    I wish her well and hope she has a fast recovery.

  2. She’s the best. We used to have Rosa Franklin and her, but now it’s just her.
