Rep. Spohnholz home recovering from blood clots
House Rep. Ivy Spohnholz (D-Anchorage) is recovering from a pulmonary embolism, but she said in Twitter a post she expects to return to the Capitol next Monday.
“Thanks to those who have reached out to me over these past several days. I am recovering from complications from pulmonary embolism. I am home recuperating with family. I plan to return to Juneau next Monday. I am monitoring #akleg this week, and my staff are hard at work.”
Spohnholz recently had to be medivaced back to Anchorage for tests and treatment because there were no commercial flights immediately available, said House Speaker Bryce Edgmon (D-Dillingham).
Spohnholz expected return coincides with a possible vote on the state’s operating budget.
She serves in a bi-partisan majority that holds a narrow 22-18 edge, so it’s critical for the majority to have full representation.
