Wyoming U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi is recovering from emergency oral surgery plus a spokesman claims that the Republican expects to be back at work soon.

Enzi informs the Gillette News Record which he was feeling a tiny bit off, and on Sunday, he felt increasingly worse and went into the hospital where doctors removed his esophagus. The operation was performed in Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette.

The Enzi, a former mayor of Gillette, missed a scheduled speech in a Gillette cemetery.

Press Secretary Max D’Onofrio states Enzi expected to resume his schedule when Congress returns to Washington and remained in the hospital Tuesday.

Enzi has been a senator since January 1997. He’s chairman of the Senate Budget Committee.
