LAS VEGAS (AP) — Blues legend B.B. King remains in hospice care at his Las Vegas home.

King's longtime business manager, Laverne Toney, said Monday the musician was resting after returning from a hospital Friday.

Toney has legal control over King's affairs.

The 89-year-old musician has posted thanks on his official website for fans' well-wishes and prayers.

The hospitalization was the second in a month for King, who was diagnosed with diabetes decades ago.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and 15-time Grammy winner is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
