Republicans seem to have had a disproportionate share of health maladies since the start of the year.

Rep. Norm Johnson, R-Yakima, is the latest, although his was a “minor” problem, he said.

(I just met Johnson this session, and he offered to demonstrate he could kick, even if he wasn’t the former Seattle Seahawks kicker.)

Rep. Johnson ‘on the mend’ after minor stomach procedure

Rep. Norm Johnson says he’s feeling well and “on the mend” after undergoing a minor procedure Tuesday to repair some stomach problems.

Johnson entered Yakima Regional Medical Center Monday after feeling ill.

“I spoke to the chamber of commerce on Monday and I felt fine. But later in the afternoon, I suddenly became nauseous. I had some friends take me to the hospital and the doctors discovered I had a lesion in my stomach. They did an endoscopy yesterday and repaired the lesion,” said Johnson, R-Yakima. “It wasn’t anything serious and the repair was successful. I feel much better and will be released from the hospital within the next day or so.”
