Lady Marsha Barbour Has Spinal Surgery
From: Office of the
First Lady Marsha Barbour underwent major spinal surgery today in what
physicians described as a revision of surgery she had in 1996. The surgery
was done by the same team at a medical center in California where the
original surgery was performed.
Governor Haley Barbour, who is with his wife of 34 years, said she
tolerated the surgery well. Due to the nature of the surgery, Mrs. Barbour
faces a long recuperative period; a full recovery is expected. A date for
her release from the hospital has not yet been set, but Governor Barbour
said he and the First Lady will return to Mississippi as soon as possible.
