McEachin recovering from blood clot

U.S. Rep. Donald McEachin, D-4th.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Don McEachin is recovering after being hospitalized for a blood clot, according to his office.

The 4th District Democrat has been away from Capitol Hill since the first week of April, when he developed a blot clot and a swollen leg, making it difficult for him to walk, said his spokeswoman Ariana Valderrama.

“He’s doing better every day and we look forward to him returning to work after the district work period,” Valderrama said.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday wrapped up voting for the week; the chamber is scheduled to have a two-week recess before reconvening on April 29.

McEachin, 57, a cancer survivor who has dealt with other recent health issues, was first elected to the seat in 2016.
