Doctors: Boozman Doing 'Amazingly Well'

ROGERS, AR. --- Dr. E.J. Chauvin, the Mercy Cardiac & Thoracic surgeon, who performed the surgery, said, “Senator Boozman is doing amazingly well after surgery to replace his ascending aorta. One reason he is doing so well is because of his great physical condition. At this time, we expect the Senator to have a full recovery. He should be able to return to his full duties without any restrictions in the future.”

The Senator was moved from the intensive care unit (ICU) to a private recovery room Thursday. As he continues to regain strength, Boozman has been conversational with family for long stretches of the day and walking frequently with the aid of medical staff.

Senator Boozman’s family, who continues to be with him at the hospital, are very grateful for the prayers, kind words and well-wishes that have come from Arkansans and people all across the country.

At the family’s request, Mercy Hospital cannot give out his room information or allow visitors. Correspondence can be sent to: Portfolio Real Estate c/o Kristen Boozman 5409 Pinnacle Point Drive Rogers, AR 72758.
