Laramie, WY – US Representative Barbara Cubin's husband is back in the hospital with a major health problem. The congresswoman's office says Doctor Frederick "Fritz" Cubin
is listed in critical condition after undergoing surgery to help prevent "life-threatening bleeding."
He is being treated at the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper. Fritz Cubin was recently diagnosed with a condition in which there is a deficient number of circulating blood platelets. The condition leaves him in danger of bleeding to death.
He underwent surgery on Monday.
Cubin intends to remain at her husband's side in Casper until his condition significantly improves.
Cubin's husband has battled an immune disorder for years. He was hospitalized for about five weeks in April and May with pneumonia and a critically low blood count.
