Loretta Lynn wants to go to the place she loves most...her ranch

As previously reported, the 85-year-old singer was rushed to a hospital in Nashville after suffering a stroke at her Hurricane Hills Ranch on May 15. She was then moved from the Nashville hospital to a rehab facility after it was feared that the singer's stroke may have caused more damage than first believed.

Following her stroke, Loretta's rep stated that the singer was resting, talkative, and expected to make a full recovery.

New reports from Radar Online reveal that insiders close to Loretta's situation claim that the singer is starting to give up, asking to be placed on her tour bus and asking to return home to die.
