MCALLEN, Texas - On Tuesday, May 5, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) issued the following statement:
“Last Thursday evening, I suffered a fall while working around my home. Thankfully, I received the immediate medical attention I needed.
I would like to thank Hidalgo County EMS personnel, Dr. Javier Cortinas, and all the amazing medical emergency room doctors and hospital personnel who provided me with world class health care. I am also grateful to my nurses, Rachel, Abby and Jorge who took such good care of me until my discharge.
I’m currently working from home, following the advice of my doctors who expect a full recovery. I will continue my focus and work on the needs of the 15th Congressional District of Texas and will be back to my office as soon as I am physically able. I appreciate everyone’s prayers and well wishes.”
