Dingell Has ‘Minimally Invasive’ Heart Procedure in Detroit Hospital (Updated)

Updated 12:55 p.m. | Rep. John D. Dingell underwent a “minimally invasive” heart procedure today at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and is “resting comfortably,” according to his office.

“He recently developed atrial fibrillation, and the procedure will seek to find the source of the abnormal heart rhythm and correct it. He is expected to stay in the hospital overnight and be released Friday,” his office said in a statement.

The Michigan Democrat plans to have a light workload during next week’s recess and plans to return to work when Congress reconvenes March 24.

Dingell recently announced that he would not run for re-election.

    Let’t hope he has his procedure delayed several months, just like Obamacare will do to the rest of us.

      Let’s not forget to check and make sure he pays his $13,000 deductible too…..

    Why is it just minimal?

    Much of what unfree countries have today is the result of technologies, ideas, and customs learned, transferred, or stolen from free nations.
