Tammy Faye Bakker, the teary-eyed wife of former evangelist Jim Bakker, headed home after visiting her husband, who is serving a 45-year sentence for fraud and conspiracy.

"I feel like my heart is hanging on the outside of my chest," she said during the visit to her husband, who temporarily is being held in a nearby medium-security federal prison.Since the PTL founder's arrival last week, reporters have been at the lockup almost daily. And Mrs. Bakker has ventured out into the community when not visiting her husband, who was convicted of defrauding his TV followers of more than $3 million.
