Dale Evans, star of film and TV Westerns and widow of singing cowboy Roy Rogers, was in serious but stable condition Wednesday after her pacemaker was replaced.
Evans, 86, underwent the operation Tuesday evening.
Her grandson, Dustin Rogers, said tests show she may have had a mild heart attack, and that her illness may have been prompted by a
diet change and exhaustion.
She suffered a heart attack in 1992 and a stroke in 1996.
Evans starred in 35 movies and a 1950s TV series with her husband and co-wrote his theme song "Happy Trails to You." She is
also the author of inspirational books and hosts a talk show on cable's Trinity Broadcast Network.
Roy Rogers died last year from congestive heart failure at age 86.
