Blues singer Etta James is gravely ill.  James, a Riverside resident for many years, was hospitalized this week due to ongoing complications related to leukemia.

James has maintained a low public profile in recent years, partly due to health problems, and because she was able to work from a recording studio built in her Riverside home.

When at home she has been under the care of a live-in doctor, but James returned to the hospital due to a serious infection, according to Dr. Elaine James– who is not related to Etta James.

Etta James is not in hospice care, and is currently being treated her illness, which is terminal.  People close to the family have said they hope she will be able to spend her final days at home.  It’s unclear if that will be possible.

James has won six Grammys for her work.   She is 73 years old.
