LITTLE ROCK, AR - After having a "textbook" heart surgery, former U.S. Senator David Pryor is having a "textbook" recovery.  That's according to his son, Senator Mark Pryor.

The younger Pryor told reporters in a conference call today that his 72-year-old father is "exactly on schedule" with his recovery after having quadruple bypass surgery in October.

David Pryor served three terms in the Senate, from 1979 to 1997, and two terms as Arkansas governor.
