Sen. Inhofe on the Mend after Quadruple Bypass

Tuesday, 08 Oct 2013 07:35 AM

Oklahoma U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe is recovering in a Tulsa hospital after undergoing an emergency quadruple bypass last week.

The Republican senator, who turns 79 next month, says doctors discovered the massive blockage in his arteries during a routine medical screening. He flew home to Tulsa and underwent the emergency heart surgery Friday at St. John Medical Center.

Inhofe tells the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/19dkk5Y ) that he feels fine and never experienced any symptoms. He says two of his arteries had 100 percent blockage, another was at 90 percent, and a fourth was 75 percent blocked. Inhofe says he expects to return to Washington in a few days once doctors clear him to fly.

A vocal critic of President Barack Obama, Inhofe is seeking his fourth term in the U.S. Senate.
