WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) continues to recover after falling and breaking four ribs.

His office said the fall happened Tuesday night at his D.C. apartment.

Isakson’s spokesperson, Amanda Maddox, said, “Senator Isakson was admitted to George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday night after falling in his apartment and suffering four fractured ribs. He is in pain, but resting and doing well. Senator Isakson looks forward to fully recovering and getting back to work for Georgians.”

Other members of the Georgia delegation are also offering well-wishes.

Congressman Austin Scott (R-GA) said, “We all love Johnny and just a great man a great senator. Vivian and I and the people of the eighth district wish him the best and we’re counting on seeing him at the first Georgia football game. In fact, Uga told me he was going to be there, so I feel pretty good about it.”

Senator David Perdue tweeted, “Bonnie and I join all Georgians in wishing Senator Isakson a full and speedy recovery. Johnny is a great partner in the Senate, and I have no doubt he’ll be back to work soon.”

Back in 2015, Senator Isakson’s office confirmed his Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis.
It’s unclear whether Parkinson’s played any role in Tuesday’s fall.
