women, had breast cancer. After successfully battling cancer, she had
reconstructive surgery this summer and remains cancer free today.
However, this morning Carly came down with an infection associated with
the reconstructive surgery and, as a result, she was admitted to the hospital

schedule today, Carly is upbeat and her doctors expect her to make a quick
and full recovery and be back out on the campaign trail soon. Carly is looking
forward to getting back to her full campaign schedule and to defeating
Barbara Boxer on November 2."
