In my mind
I certainly hope he will be fine. Whilst I disagree with the socially conservative Democrat, I certainly applaud him on his lack of partisanship and his ability to stand up for his ideals.

Rep. John Murtha has been admitted to an intensive care unit at a Virginia hospital after experiencing "complications" from gall bladder surgery a week ago.







Rep. John Murtha has been admitted to an intensive care unit at a Virginia hospital after experiencing "complications" from gall bladder surgery a week ago.



A Murtha spokesman told Fox News that Murtha underwent a scheduled laparoscopic surgery to remove his gall bladder, after he was hospitalized in December suffering a gall bladder infection.



The 77-year-old Pennsylvania Democrat had the surgery at Bethesda Naval Hospital but was admitted afterward to the Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington.



"Complications did arise from the surgery," a Murtha aide said, without elaborating.



Aides would not comment on the severity of Murtha's condition.

All I could think was "Murtha has MRSA?"




Best wishes to him for a fast recovery, and thank goodness our reps have access to great health care. It must be nice.
