Reed goes to Washington, and the hospital

WASHINGTON—The recently elected 29th Congressional District Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) went to the hospital, Sunday, Nov. 14.
Tim Kolpien, communications director for the district, said Reed woke up during the night “feeling ill and short of breath.” The press release said Reed was taken to a nearby hospital. He was in Washington D.C. to attend an orientation for freshman congressional members.
Kolpien said Reed was diagnosed with some blood clotting in his lungs and is receiving appropriate treatment. He added Reed has no prior history with blood clots and “is in good condition and resting comfortably.”

Another press release on Thursday, Nov. 18, said Reed was expected to be released later that day and be sworn in as the 29th Congressional District representative.
“It appears that Congressman-elect Reed’s condition was caused by a blood clot migrating from the leg,” said Vivek Jain, MD, pulmonologist at The George Washington University Hospital.  Jain is the treating physician for Congressman-elect Reed.  “He has responded well to a regimen of anti-clotting medications, and remained a few days at the hospital for observation. The Congressman-elect has been given the green light to resume his responsibilities.”

Reed beat Matt Zeller for the seat in both the regular and special elections, Nov. 2.
