WACO, Texas - Anti-war demonstrator Cindy Sheehan was hospitalized
Friday evening for dehydration and exhaustion after fasting for more
than a month and protesting earlier this week in 100-degree weather,
friends and relatives said.
Sheehan was listed in stable condition at Providence Health Center in
Waco. Brenda Mauk, a nursing supervisor, declined to release additional
Sheehan, 49, was hospitalized after friends picked her up Friday
afternoon at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, where she
arrived after spending several days in Seattle at the Veterans for
Peace convention, said friend Tiffany Burns.
Sheehan, who has been on a liquid diet as part of the nationwide
"Troops Home Fast" hunger strike, had been treated and released from a
Seattle emergency room Thursday night. On doctors orders, she ate for
the first time in about 37 days, Burns said.
Sheehan also underwent additional tests for uterine bleeding, her
sister Dede Miller said.
Sheehan was to spend Friday night in the Waco hospital but planned to
attend some war protest activities Saturday at the 5-acre lot she
bought last month in Crawford, President Bush's adopted hometown, about
20 miles from Waco.
Sheehan kicked off her summer war protest Sunday, the one-year
anniversary of her first anti-war demonstration in Crawford that
attracted more than 10,000 people over 26 days.
"She's in good spirits, but she's sad she can't be at Camp Casey,"
Burns told The Associated Press, referring to the campsite named for
her soldier son Casey who was killed in Iraq in 2004.
