Florida Representative Released From Local Hospital

North Florida Rep. Will Kendrick may have an added incentive to correct problems with the medical system.

He's just been released from a Tallahassee Hospital after surgery to remove a benign growth from his lower colon.

Doctors do expect him to make a full recovery, but he says he has a little more sympathy for what Floridians go through since he's just faced it himself.

"It is real frustrating and dangerous to lay in an emergency room for hours while hoping that a doctor will eventually be willing to take your case," Kendrick says.
