Pryor Continues Recovery from Heart Bypass Surgery

OCTOBER 13, 2006 - Posted at 11:48 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A spokesman for the family of former U.S. Senator David Pryor says he's continuing to recover well from his quadruple-bypass heart surgery.  Michael Teague, a spokesman for Pryor's son, current Senator Mark Pryor, says the family has been flooded with flowers, cards, e-mails and other get-well wishes for the elder Pryor.

The former senator underwent surgery Wednesday at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.

Teague said the elder Pryor, also a former Arkansas governor, was sitting up in his room in the intensive care unit at UAMS today and had orange juice for breakfast.  Teague said doctors told the family that Pryor would be eating more as his appetite returns.

Teauge said Pryor's family and a few friends had been to see him, but doctors wanted the former senator to rest.
