Jason Heyward Releases Statement On His Recovery

Heyward tweets about his surgery and his recovery.

Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward released this statement via Twitter, regarding his recent appendectomy:

Good morning, I wish everyone well. Thankful for everyone that's taken time out of their day to send me well wishes, prayers and comfort. I'm fortunate enough that the surgery I needed was nothing more serious than removing something that we as ppl don't need to live anyway. Although there's a little discomfort it won't last. And there are ppl that have surgery to remove things that are far more life threatening than an appendix. For those concerned, I'm as comfortable as I can be recovering. Resting up and I'll be back to work as soon as it's smart to do so. Looking forward to watching my teammates strive towards a common goal while I'm out, and looking forward to joining them again on the field asap. Thank y'all again for your time and thoughts.

Take care

Quality statement from J-Hey. I hope his recovery goes smoothly and he is back in the lineup mashing in a couple of weeks as planned.
