Fort Valley lawmaker Sellier's health improving

State Rep. Tony Sellier, R-Fort Valley, is improving and may get to leave the intensive care unit at The Medical Center of Central Georgia tomorrow.

"We're keeping our fingers crossed," his wife, Judye Sellier, said today. "They may take us to the floor tomorrow."

Sellier has been in the ICU since January 28 because of problems related to radiation cancer treatments on his throat many years ago, his wife said. At one point recently he was on a ventilator to help him breath, but Sellier has been removed from that device and his spirits are good, she said.

Sellier himself, in a brief cell phone conversation and with a raspy voice, said today that he feels "the crisis is over."

"I think we're moving forward now," he said.

Sellier, who replaced former state Rep. Robert Ray in the House of Representatives, was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2006. He represents Crawford county and portions of Peach, Monroe, Lamar and Upson counties.
