WASHINGTON (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden's 91-year-old mother had surgery for a hip fracture Monday morning and is recovering well, a statement from Biden's office said.
Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Biden was taken to the University of Pennsylvania hospital in Philadelphia after falling Sunday at her home in Delaware.
The vice president's spokeswoman, Elizabeth Alexander, issued a statement saying that Mrs. Biden is in stable condition after the surgery, which was performed by Dr. Samir Mehta, the chief of the Division of Orthopaedic Trauma at the hospital.
The operation involved "applying a plate and screw device to Mrs. Biden's hip," the statement said.
"Dr. Mehta is pleased with the outcome of the surgery."
She's a tough lady and will be out there kicking Bidens butt in no time.
Best wishes and a quick recovery to you Mrs. Biden.
Get Well Mama Biden!
WE PRAY FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY FOR VP BIDENS' MOTHER.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
Our prayers go out to her. She's a WONDERFUL woman.
God bless her with a speedy recovery.
Man, what a change.
When Mrs. Bush had surgery, you left wing nut jobs were on here bashing her and complaining that she was getting "free" surgery from the government etc etc
Now, Mrs. Biden gets surgery and it looks like a Hallmark committee meeting.
Funny how that whole political affiliation things works huh?
