CHEYENNE – State Senate Majority Floor Leader Phil Nicholas went to a Denver hospital Friday afternoon for treatment of a chronic liver problem, Senate President Tony Ross said.

Ross said Nicholas has had a chronic liver problem since he was 29 years old.

“If you haven’t noticed in the last few days, he has been jaundiced,” Ross said Friday afternoon.

Ross said Nicholas underwent an MRI on his liver and it looked OK.

He added that Nicholas had a blood test two days ago.

“It needs to be corrected," Ross said. "He takes a medication three times a day to control his bilirubin and it isn’t working very well right now.”

Ross said Nicholas will see a specialist at Anschutz Health and Wellness Center in Denver.

    He is lucky to have "state" health care. Hopefully all is well

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
