David Pryor to undergo heart surgery

Posted By on Tue, Oct 10, 2006 at 1:47 PM

U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor's office just announced that his father, former U.S. Sen. and Arkansas Gov. David Pryor, was treated for chest pains at UAMS last night and will undergo open heart surgery tomorrow.

"My father's doctors are prescribing the necessary treatment for a full recovery," Mark Pryor said in a statement. "It is a comfort to know that he is under the care of some of best doctors in the nation at UAMS. Since Dad's last heart episode, 14 years ago, he remains physically fit and watches his diet and exercise. He has been a model patient.  Of course, bed rest will be the most difficult aspect for him with such an active schedule.  On behalf of my mother, Barbara, and brothers, David and Scott and our families, we ask for your continued prayer, support and friendship."
