Box returns to work soon

By

Mayor Charles Box will return to City Hall later in the week after recovering from elective, non-emergency surgery at Rockford Memorial Hospital.

Box received right thoracotomy surgery, which entails making an incision into the chest wall. Peter Marks, M.D., a board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon, removed a small, benign growth from the mayor’s right lung. No complications occurred.

Ruth MIller, community programs coordinator for the city, said Box is just resting at home, and he should return to normal duties within a week.

Miller stated City Hall has kept in constant contact with him throughout the week. She also said Box appreciates all the concerns, cards and well wishes.
