Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) attended a public House committee hearing on Thursday afternoon for the first time since he received emergency surgery and lost vision in his left eye.
Crenshaw, who attended the House Energy and Commerce meeting virtually, said that he still couldn’t see everyone, but was hoping he would be able to see people again in the next few weeks and back to normal “within a couple of months.”
Crenshaw noted in a separate social media video-update about his eye — which required emergency surgery earlier this month — that he has started attending virtual congressional hearings.
“Even a blind knuckle-dragger can do committee hearings,” joked Crenshaw in the video. “So no worries there, Tara and I are fine, we’re having a good time, I’ve listened to countless audio books by this point, and you know what, we’re really appreciative of all of the well-wishes, all the prayers, it really helps. Thank you, we’ll be back in the fight soon.”
