Jerry Lawler's girlfriend, Lauryn McBride, sent an update to WMC-TV in Memphis about "The King's" progress. She told the news station that he ate some oatmeal and eggs earlier today, and even walked around his hospital room.

"(and fixed his hair---for everyone knows how he is about his hair---lol.) They are now taking lines out and he is looking so good today!!!" McBride texted to Action News 5's Joe Birch. "We will go for a walk in just a bit and s=do (sic) some more breathingexercises (sic). Will update as the day goes on."

Jim Ross also posted the following update on his Twitter: "The King is moving around and eating. In great frame of mind. Getting better by the day. All good news. On road to full recovery."

In case you missed it earlier, she also posted this tweet and photo of Lawler at the hospital:
