Commissioner is still hospitalized

Summit County Commissioner Ken Woolstenhulme was still hospitalized Friday after he was taken from his home in Oakley via ambulance May 21.

"I got so many blinking tubes going in and out that I don’t know if any of them are doing any good," Woolstenhulme said in telephone interview Friday.

Woolstenhulme is staying at St. Marks Hospital. He said he underwent surgery last week to remove his gallbladder and gallstones, which are crystallized secretions in the body.

"They don’t know what’s going on and I don’t know what’s going on either," Woolstenhulme said. "We’ll just play their game and see what happens."

Woolstenhulme left the weekly meeting of the County Commission May 21 when he felt ill in Coalville. He expects to remain hospitalized for several days.

"He is not doing as well as they thought he would," lamented Karren Woolstenhulme, who is Ken’s wife.

Woolstenhulme, a Democrat, will finish his County Commission term this year after he ran unopposed in 2006.
