She notes in the release that her constituents can still reach her by phone and email.
"There are a couple of fairly routine procedures to help keep some chronic health issues in check," she said in the release. "I appreciate everyone's positive thoughts for me and kindness towards my family during these times."
I've talked to her about the matter and it's partially related to past surgeries, but I don't want to get into it as they've already been made public and I'll let her discuss them if she wants.
The Porch wishes Amy a successful surgery and full recovery.
