(CNN) -- Luci Baines Johnson, the younger of the late President Lyndon Baines Johnson's daughters, has been hospitalized at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, according to a former member of Johnson's staff.
Luci Johnson, 62, was first taken to the Seton Medical Center in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday after complaining of extreme weakness in all her extremities, said Tom Johnson, who worked for the Johnson administration and later served as president of CNN in the 1990s.
Doctors there recommended that she be treated at the Mayo Clinic for what physicians believe is Guillain-Barre syndrome, Johnson said. It's an autoimmune disorder affecting the nervous system.

Luci or Linda told a very pathetic story on a C-Span panel of First Children. Maureen Reagan told a darling story about her father and one of the Johnson girls told a story about how LBJ made her stay up with him ALL NIGHT, then in the morning got a phone call from someone and then DISMISSED her. It was sad the way she told the story...nothing endearing or funny. He was an EVIL man.
Prayers up for Luci. Hope the docs find the cause soon and take the right steps to prevent any further debility.
I always liked the Johnson girls—traditional wives and mothers.
Thanks for sharing. . .an interesting story; and probably a common unfolding; if truth were known. While this report offers that Luci was in excellent health before her falling ill; it was reported elsewhere that she had a stomach virus; earlier this week. Hope you are right about catching it early so that her prognosis is a good one.
The book has been out for quite a while; and find it interesting that while I think I saw it once; (did not go near it as thought it was about research monkeys); had otherwise, never heard of it. Certainly, the author did not make the usual book tour.
Anyway; as an often 'late nighter' tune in to George Noory. His guest the other night was Edward Haslam/author of Dr. Mary's Monkey. It sounded like a science fiction - a bad one(!); but with a truth embedded. (It is a time trip, back to names that were prominent after JFK's assassination.)
It was also an idea that took, apparently literally, a 'life of it's own' - and more lives taken, subsequently, by design. Incredulous on the one hand; and all too plausible on the other. (No wonder JFK documents have been so long sealed!)
Noteworthy as well; that many involved in JFK 'plot'; died of cancer.; including Jack Ruby. A convenience of facts and nothing more. . .perhaps. . .
