Update: This story has been updated to include information about Kelly's condition on Thursday.
COLUMBIA — State Rep. Chris Kelly, D-Columbia, had surgery Wednesday morning after suffering a heart attack Tuesday.
Kelly had two stents inserted in his heart Wednesday morning, said Donna Scheulen, his legislative assistant.
On Thursday morning, Kelly was resting in University Hospital. He hoped to return home on Thursday or Friday, depending on the advice of his doctors, Scheulen said.
"He was feeling pretty good last night," Scheulen said on Thursday.
Kelly was taken to Capital Regional Medical Center in Jefferson City on Tuesday after suffering chest and arm pains, according to previous Missourian reporting. An EKG indicated he hadn't had a heart attack.
Further testing showed Kelly had suffered a heart attack, Scheulen said. He was transferred to University Hospital in Columbia late Tuesday night to be closer to home and his own doctors, she said.
On Thursday morning, Kelly's office was carrying on his efforts for H.J.R. 14, a bill Kelly co-sponsored to issue revenue bonds for higher education improvement projects and transportation infrastructure, Scheulen said.
