·1 min read

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller announced that he was admitted to a Fort Worth-area hospital on Saturday after he experienced shortness of breath the night before.

It was not clear why Miller, who is 66 and lives in Stephenville, was in the Fort Worth area.

The commissioner wrote on Saturday in a Facebook message that he was undergoing tests.

“I am up and about and in good spirits. Debra and I are humbled by the prayers and good wishes we have received. I expect to be back to my normal schedule in just a few days,” Miller wrote, referring to his wife.

Asked if Miller remained at a hospital Saturday night and for information about his diagnosis, an agriculture department spokesperson said that he did not have an update.

Miller in December said that he has tested positive for COVID-19. The commissioner wrote then that he had survived rodeo injuries, broken bones, hip, double knee and shoulder surgery, West Nile virus and cancer.
