Now, he is providing his constituents with an update on his recovery.

See his statement below:

“A few weeks ago, I sent you all a message to tell you about the cancer diagnosis that I’d received. I wanted to let you know that on April 17, I had a successful surgery to remove the cancer. The good news is—it’s gone. And I won’t need any further treatment, just continued monitoring over the next several years. The good news is the surgery was successful, and that’s something I’m really grateful for. I’m particularly grateful to have caught the cancer early and have it removed.

“I’m really grateful to the physicians who have helped me through this. I’m especially grateful to my family, my wife, my kids, my mom, and my brothers and sisters, who have been so supportive throughout this. I’m grateful for my staff who continue to do the work of the office and be responsive to all of you, as we’ve gone through this struggle.

“It’s going to take a little bit longer for me to get back to 100 percent. But here I am, back in the office and going to work. Not a full schedule yet, but I’ll get there pretty soon. Thank you to everyone who has sent messages, your kindness has been very helpful and supportive of me as I’ve gone through this. It’s been quite an ordeal, and I’m glad to put it behind me. It’s going to take a little while before I’m at 100 percent. But I’m back now, and I just want to say thanks to all of you.”
