Rep. Hill recovering after marrow transplant

(Continued)

Rep. Viriato deMacedo, R-Plymouth, who was elected to the House the same year as Hill, said “watching a friend go through this type of procedure makes you realize what’s important in life.” He described him as a “trooper” and said Hill talks to him about his concerns about missing votes.

“He has to do what he has to do, and we all understand that,” deMacedo said. “We know that he is totally engaged, even from his hospital bed.”

Hours after the bone marrow transplant, deMacedo said Hill was texting him about the debate on the welfare reform bill passed in the House Wednesday.

Jones described Hill as the “epitome of someone who is dedicated to his district.”
