Boozman Out of Intensive Care, Remains in Hospital

Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., remains in the hospital, but has been out of intensive care following his emergency heart surgery earlier this week.

“He remains hospitalized but doctors have moved him from the intensive care unit to a private recovery room,” his office said in  a statement. “Boozman has been in stable condition since the successful operation to remedy an acute aortic dissection.”

The statement went on to say his family remains with him and that “doctors are amazed at how quickly Boozman is recovering from the surgery. As he continues to regain strength, Boozman has been conversational with family for long stretches of the day and walking frequently with the aid of medical staff.”

Boozman, 63, was taken to the hospital early Tuesday morning, by his wife Cathy, after suffering pain in his chest and shoulder. At the time he was alert, responsive and in good spirits despite the discomfort and pain, the family said in a statement yesterday.

After running several tests, doctors diagnosed Boozman with an acute aortic dissection and he was admitted for immediate surgery. The surgeons who performed the operation, which lasted several hours, said that Boozman responded well to the procedure.

Wednesday’s statement also expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support for the senator.
