NBC News reports Scott Carpenter suffered a stroke this week in Colorado.
The 88-year-old former spaceflier was stricken three days ago in Vail, Colo., where he has a home, and is being hospitalized in Denver, the sources told NBC News' Cape Canaveral correspondent, Jay Barbree.

He reportedly experienced some paralysis and is having trouble speaking, but is expected to make a full recovery.

I don't think Scott keeps up with collectSPACE but think he'd be moved by these many well wishes. I've been in touch with his family and will be sure to pass this information along.

Get well soon, Mr. Carpenter. Just another bump in the road of life. It's not how bumpy the road is, but how we continue to drive the car.

An update from Vail Daily:
... [John] Glenn has been calling regularly since word of Scott Carpenter's stroke spread through the space community, said Patty Carpenter, Scott's wife.

"John has been one of Scott's greatest supporters," Patty said.

Scott Carpenter has been moved to [a] rehab center specifically for stroke patients.

"The intention is to strengthen him so he can be up and around in several weeks," Patty Carpenter said.

And I can share that Carpenter's family has seen the many notes posted here, and they've been appreciated.
