U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw

U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, whose District 2 includes parts of the Greater Heights, is “hopeful and confident” for a return to normal following his retinal surgery earlier this month.

“(Wife) Tara and I are doing well thanks to the generous prayers and support, for which we are so grateful," Crenshaw said in a statement posted to his Twitter account April 23. We’ve been through harder times before, and we are going to get through this."

Crenshaw, a Republican who was elected to a second two-year term last November, said he is still in the early stages of recovery from the procedure, but that the surgery went well with no complications.

“My congressional offices in Houston and Washington, D.C. continue to function as normal and I am staying up to date on legislation in the House, but I still will not be posting to social media or conducting interviews for the time being,” he wrote. “I am focusing on my recovery so I can be back to 100 percent as soon as possible.”
