“I think she’s tough as a metal boot,” her brother, Andy Ivins, said Friday after a visit with her at Seton Medical Center in Austin.

Andy Ivins said his sister was admitted to Seton on Thursday. She spent Friday morning with longtime colleagues and friends, and was “sleeping peacefully” when he arrived later in the day.

    I am so sorry to hear this about Molly. I’d read a while back that she was being treated for cancer again, but hadn’t seen an update on her condition.

    Molly has been my very favorite columnist since I read her book, “Molly Ivins Can’t Say That, Can She?” many years ago. Her savvy, her unrelenting humor, and her on-target political analysis of current events has been sorely missed.

    I wish her a speedy and complete recovery.
