WINDOW ROCK – Navajo President Joe Shirley Jr. is recovering at his home after undergoing an emergency operation to have his appendix removed.

Shirley’s spokesman George Hardeen says his boss was released the morning of July 20 from Rehoboth McKinley Christian Hospital in nearby Gallup, N.M.

Shirley went in for the operation early July 18.

Tribal Vice President Ben Shelly assured Navajo lawmakers convening for the first day of their annual summer session July 20 that the executive branch is fully functioning. He says Shirley has been ordered by his doctors to get some rest.
