Rep. Craig hoping to return to work next week following surgery on ankle

U.S. Representative Angie Craig announced that she is hoping to return to work next week following a “successful” surgery to her ankle on Thursday.

She wrote in a statement that she hopes to work remotely next week before returning to Congress once she is cleared to travel.

Thursday’s statement reads, in part:

“This morning, I underwent successful surgery to repair three fractures in my left ankle, leaving me with nine screws and a plate in my ankle as well as an internal tightrope device to stabilize the ligament. It may take a little more time to get all that new hardware through security at the airport — but I’m looking forward to scooting around the district and DC again soon!”

As previously reported, Craig broke her ankle Monday when she tripped while doing yard work.
