Illinois Republican Rep. Terri Bryant
Rep. Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) is recovering from her second neck surgery this summer, as announced via a post on Bryant's Facebook page on July 11.
"I want to thank everyone that has reached out through calls, texts, and social media to offer your thoughts, prayers, and positive vibes as I have now undergone a [second] neck surgery in the last month. I am happy to report that yesterday's surgery was successful and I am now resting and recovering at home."
Bryant's Facebook followers were quick to respond with prayers and best wishes for a strong recovery.
Bryant was able to return to her duties the following week, attending events such as the Carbondale Senior Citizens Health Fair and the Jefferson County 4-H auction, both on July 24 .
