Congressman recovers from brain tumor surgery

Al's Comment:

 I usually do not post stories like this but perhaps this congressman can become an ally  in our fight to get a new law to make all major brain tumor centers considered as "in network" on insurance plans. This senator chose 2 of the best hospitals in the country to get treatment for his tumor. Why is it fair that the average person isn't allowed that same opportunity?

BALTIMORE —Mississippi Congressman Alan Nunnelee's staff said he is doing well after brain surgery and has been moved from The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to its outpatient center.

 

 

Nunnelee underwent surgery June 9 in Houston to remove a small tumor and went to Johns Hopkins for further treatment and rehabilitation.

He said in a news release that, after nearly two months, he's happy to begin the next phase of recovery.

The statements quotes Dr. Dorianne Feldman as saying Nunnelee has made significant progress.

Nunnelee's staff said he will continue radiation and chemotherapy and speech and mobility rehabilitation for several weeks as an outpatient.

The Tupelo Republican is running for a third term. He serves on the House appropriations and budget committees.
