Norwood hospitialized

From the AJC:

A press release on Norwood’s Web site announced Tuesday that doctors treating the Augusta Republican, who received a right lung transplant in October 2004, had found a small tumor blocking his bile ducts.

The press release said Norwood, 65, who last year underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his non-functioning left lung, was receiving chemotherapy at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax, Va., in suburban Washington. He is expected to remain there until the end of the week.

“I fully anticipate being back to full strength by the time the 110th Congress convenes in January,” Norwood said in a statement.

We wish him a speedy recovery.

    I rarely agree with Charlie Norwood politically, but I have always respected him. I have written, called and emailed numerous political figures, usually to express disagreement with them or to ask them to support a particular issue or piece of legislation. Charlie Norwood was one of the few who personally contacted me in return.

    I’ve known Charlie and Gloria for 13 years and they are both great people. I am praying for Charlie and I would ask everyone else to do so as well.
