In late January 2016, I underwent a hip replacement procedure to correct problems stemming from my October 2014 hip surgery.  In late 2014 and early 2015, I had two hip surgeries, one on each hip.  Over the last several months, I have encountered ongoing difficulties with my recovery from the first surgery, necessitating a further procedure.

I look forward to a speedy recovery and to returning to Washington, D.C. and attending meetings and community events throughout the 9th District.   As I recuperate, I will continue to closely monitor legislative activity in the U.S. House, consistently submit for the Congressional Record how I would have voted on any legislation considered in the House, and maximize the number of in-district meetings I take while in Washington state. Throughout my recovery, my staff will remain engaged in the community and will continue to take meetings in D.C.

Due to the procedure, and the medical concerns related to traveling, I will unavoidably miss votes in the U.S. House.  For every vote taken by the House during my absence, I am committed to ensuring that my constituents have access to the appropriate records so they know where I stand on the issues.  My position on each matter considered during my time away will appear in the Congressional Record and is accessible through my congressional website:

I also want to thank everyone who reached out to me and my office to wish me well in my recovery.  The outpouring of support has meant a lot to me and helped to keep my spirits up during the procedure and recovery.
