‘I Am Blessed’: GOP Rep. Gives Health Update After Fall Landed Him In ICU | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Congressman Greg Steube (R-FL) shared an update on his health on Monday after a fall from a ladder outside his Sarasota, Florida, home resulted in a trip to the Intensive Care Unit.

    Steube was knocked from the ladder last Wednesday and fell 25 feet to the ground. The congressman was rushed to the hospital after someone witnessed the fall and dialed 911, bringing first responders to the scene.

    After four days at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Steube tweeted a photo of himself at home, still wearing a stabilizing brace around his neck, on a couch with his dogs - and he shared how his recovery was going.

    "I am blessed to have a great support team in my wife Jennifer as well as numerous friends and family, including the Steube pups," he tweeted on Monday afternoon. "Grateful for everyone's prayers and well-wishes as I recover from a fractured pelvis, a punctured lung, and several torn ligaments in my neck."

    Steube went on to say that his recovery was likely to keep him out of Washington, D.C., for awhile - but that he planned to stay as connected and involved as he could during his convalescence.

    "While I will be sidelined in Sarasota for several weeks, I will be carrying out as many of my congressional duties as possible," he added. "And our D.C. and district staff continue to be readily available to assist Floridians in FL-17."

    "I'm eager to rejoin my colleagues in Washington as soon as possible!" he concluded.

    Despite Steube's absence, Fox News reported on Monday that newly-elected House Speaker Kevin McCarthy had been in touch with Steube to inform him of his committee assignment: the Florida lawmaker is set to serve on the new Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

    While Steube will likely be able to participate in some of his duties from home, the new rules adopted by the Republican-controlled House have put an end to proxy voting and virtual hearings - meaning that the congressman will not be able to cast a vote or fully participate in hearings until he recovers enough to return to Capitol Hill.
