Sen. John Boozman has been released from a Rogers hospital Sunday night following heart surgery April 22.

His office reported:

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) left Mercy Hospital after undergoing successful heart surgery and is in close contact with his office monitoring tornado recovery efforts in central Arkansas. Boozman released the following statement:

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones in this devastation. While Arkansans are all too familiar with the destruction that Mother Nature can leave behind, it never gets easier. Arkansans have always come together in the most difficult times to help neighbors in need. It’s clear that commitment continues today. I’m receiving regular updates from my staff about the current search and rescue effort. I will work with the governor’s office, the congressional delegation and FEMA Administrator Fugate to make sure that Arkansans get the resources they need to respond, rebuild and recover. We will help in any way we can.”

If any Arkansan has questions and doesn’t know where to turn, Senator Boozman’s office is here to help. Arkansans can reach the Washington, D.C. office at 202-224-4843 and the Little Rock office at 501-372-7153.

Boozman was released from the hospital Sunday night and is under doctor’s orders to rest as he regains his strength.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
