Nancy Stahoviak to return from Denver hospital

Routt County Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak is scheduled to return to Routt County today for the first time since mid-December, when she was flown to a Denver hospital because of life-threatening kidney failure and infections.

"It will be good to be back home for a while," she said.

Stahoviak will be driven back to Routt County by ambulance and will stay at her Oak Creek home for the next few weeks. Her mother, from Washington, is flying in to help Stahoviak recover.

On Feb. 4, Stahoviak will return to Denver to have one of four knee operations to replace her knee implants and fight the infection in her knees. She said she likely would have one operation a month for the next four months.

Although Stahoviak will be at home, she said she would be unable to leave her home at first because of the difficulty walking on ice and snow.

She plans on participating in more county meetings through phone conferences and will have a laptop computer set up so she can read and answer e-mails. Stahoviak, who is this year's chairwoman for the Routt County Board of County Commissioners, announced earlier this month that she would run for another term as county commissioner in November.
