The Detroit Free Press has an update on the Governor's condition:

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder had a "good restful night" in an Ann Arbor area hospital after he was hospitalized Thursday with a blood clot in his right leg, where he has been wearing a protective boot due to a torn Achilles tendon, a spokeswoman said Friday morning. Sara Wurfel said the governor was taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital after he noticed swelling in his leg following some Thursday morning meetings.

Wurfel said it's not known when the Governor will be released and that his doctors are pleased with his progress. She said he's grateful for all the well wishes he's received.

Original post: Thursday, Feb. 5, 2:41 p.m.Governor Rick Snyder has been admitted to an Ann Arbor hospital with a blood clot in his leg.

His schedule has been cleared for the next few days. The blood clot is related to an injury to his Achilles tendon that's required him to keep his leg stationary.

His staff says he is alert and continuing to work.
