Earlier today Representative Charlie Wilson was released from the hospital following his emergency surgery to repair a perforated colon.
I have to say that Wilson has earned a whole new degree of respect from me today when his office announced that he would be staying in D.C. so he could vote to override the Presidents SCHIP veto. After the vote is cast he'll be heading back home to rest and recover for a few weeks.
“I have always supported the Children’s Health Insurance Program, but there’s nothing like a week’s stay in the hospital to highlight just how crucial good healthcare is. Everyone deserves quality healthcare in this country.”
-- Rep. Charlie Wilson
I have to respect that kind of conviction and dedication from anyone, no matter what the issue was.
As for his recovery, Wilson said:
“I want to thank everyone who has sent along their good wishes and offered up prayers for my recovery. It really means a lot.”
