Posted: Wednesday, January 30, 2008

JUNEAU - State Rep. Bob Lynn is recovering from heart surgery at a hospital in Anchorage, according to his staff.

Lynn's aide Mike Sica said the Anchorage Republican suffered a partial blockage in an artery leading to the heart. He was initially treated at Juneau's Bartlett Regional Hospital before he was flown to Anchorage Providence Hospital for surgery.

He had a stent inserted in the artery on Tuesday.

Sica said Lynn was in good spirits. He is expected to return to the legislative session after a short recovery period.

Lynn is one of several legislators who have been absent recently due to illness.
