Update: Kookesh Upgraded To Fair Condition

By | February 25, 2013

Former state Senator Albert Kookesh’s condition has been upgraded from serious to fair.

He’s recovering from a Feb. 18 heart attack at Providence Alaska Medical Center.

Kookesh chairs the Sealaska regional Native corporation’s board and co-chairs the Alaska Federation of Natives board. The Angoon Democrat served 16 years in the state House and Senate.

Sealaska recently posted an online update saying he has become more awake and alert and has been able to communicate with his family. The website says his strength is slowly returning.

Family members have asked that no flowers be sent, since he is allergic. They have also requested friends and associates wait until he recovers further before trying to contact him.
