Otter says he’s ‘fully recuperated’ and ‘getting back in the saddle’

Gov. Butch Otter, who returned to the Statehouse late last week after recovering from hip replacement surgery on Jan. 20, sent out a newsletter today saying he’s “fully recuperated.” “After a successful surgery to replace my left hip, I'm feeling better than ever and ready to get back to work,” the governor said, under the heading, “Getting Back in the Saddle.”

“My recovery has been successful and I consider myself fully recuperated. Miss Lori and the doctors have taken great care of me and I'm ready to start catching up with the legislators who have been working hard for six weeks now! Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated and I look forward to seeing you all real soon.”
