Atwater: Sen. King remains in ICU but 'recovering very well'



Senate President Jeff Atwater just sent senators this update on Sen. Jim King, who had surgery last week to remove a cancerous tumor on his pancreas:

"I am very happy to be able to relay to you all that our friend, Jim King, is recovering very well from his surgery and is progressing nicely through his therapy. He remains in ICU, and will continue to stay there for a few more days to ensure that he is receiving the best possible treatment.

"In my conversations with Linda, she reminded me that their main goals right now are staying positive, getting healthy and going home. She asked that you all continue to keep them in your thoughts and that we help them meet those goals through our positive thoughts and well wishes."
