Gov. Walker’s wife released from hospital following appendectomy
MADISON (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker’s wife Tonette has been released from the hospital following an appendectomy.
Walker spokeswoman Julia Lund says that Tonette Walker was released from the hospital on Thursday, August 9th and resting at home. She had the surgery on Wednesday after being admitted the night before with stomach pains.
Walker was attending a vigil for victims of the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek when Tonette returned to the hospital Tuesday night. He left the vigil to be with her.
Walker canceled his plans on Wednesday to be with her in the hospital. Walker spokeswoman Jocelyn Webster says the governor met with families of the victims of the Sikh shootings Thursday morning, then planned to spend the rest of the day with his wife.
