The Governator of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, will probably be sporting a cast on his leg next month for his second inauguration, due to a surgery done on Tuesday to fix a fractured femur from a skiing accident he had over the weekend. Yahoo! News reports:
He underwent a 90-minute operation in which cables and screws were used to wire the broken bone back together. “Following the surgery, the governor was awake, alert and talking in the recovery room,” said Dr. Kevin Ehrhart, who performed the operation at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica and also repaired former President Reagan’s broken hip in 2001. Schwarzenegger does not intend to delay his inauguration Jan. 5, said spokeswoman Julie Soderlund. The fracture is the governor’s third medical problem in just over a year.
I hope California kept its warranty, cause its governor keeps getting busted.
