Joe Negri Recovering From Surgery (Updated)

Joe Negri was sidelined during the summer of 2012 with some issues related to infection in the colon.  At the time, the problem was controlled with antibiotics, though a possibility of surgery loomed if there were future issues.  It did, this spring, in a milder form.  Last week he had surgery at UPMC Passavant.  He's home now and recovering. "(I want to) thank everyone for the phenomenal support and positive energy I'm happy to be home and that the surgery is behind me," he said.
