Elvis performed at the Louisiana Hayride, Shreveport.
From Las Vegas Elvis traveled to Lake Tahoe where he stayed one night at Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe, before returning to Los Angeles.
Elvis was admitted to Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis. After Linda woke up finding Elvis struggling for breath Dr. Nick had him admitted. Officially they said Elvis had to undergo tests for a "liver problem" but in fact it was an attempt to get Elvis' use of prescription medication under control. Linda stayed with him in the hospital and they watched the newborns in the nursery on a closed-circuit television system.
