WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) is back at work on Capitol Hill.

A post this morning on his Facebook page stated:
"It's great to be back at work in Washington. Thank you for your prayers, support and encouragement over the past few weeks. You can follow my first week back on Instagram at: http://instagram.com/johnboozman."

In late April, Boozman, 63, had emergency heart surgery at Mercy Hospital in Rogers.

He had been taken to the hospital by his wife Cathy, after suffering pain in his chest and shoulder. He was disgnosed with an acute aortic dissection and admitted for immediate surgery.
