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.
