Rep. Pete Stark, D-Fremont, sent the following message to his Congressional colleagues today:

Dear Colleague:

To my friends and colleagues who have inquired about my health, here’s the latest.

The good news is, that after months in the hospital last year, there is no more pneumonia. Unfortunately, my lung capacity was diminished and for a while I need to use supplemental oxygen to operate at 100%.

So don’t panic if you see me with a little plastic tube at my nose. It’s a bit inconvenient, but it works.

Sincerely,
Pete Stark
