Shreveport mayor expects surgery soon

Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover expects to undergo surgery this week after a fall outside a Caddo Parish elementary school on Wednesday, October 3.

Rod Richardson, Director of Communications for the City of Shreveport, gave the update to a crowd at the Louisiana Film Prize award ceremony Sunday afternoon.  Mayor Glover is still recovering at a Shreveport hospital from last week's fall.  An MRI showed the mayor tore tendons in both of his quadriceps.

Richardson added that the mayor is in good spirits, and is continuing to fulfill his mayoral duties from his hospital bed.  Richardson said the mayor does not want anyone to worry.  He added, "the wheels on the car are flat, but the transmission's working and the engine's working. Everything else is fine."

Richardson did not specify how much longer Mayor Glover would be hospitalized, but did say he expects the surgery to happen in the middle of this week.
