HOUSTON (KIAH) — Fort Bend County Judge KP George tweeted he is in good spirits after dealing with kidney stones over the weekend.

George tweeted that he was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Sugar Land early Saturday morning “due to severe and acute abdominal and stomach pain,” he said.

Doctors identified a large kidney stone and removed it, George said.

“I am deeply thankful to my family, the emergency personnel and our healthcare staff for supporting me in the last few days,” George said. “I am in good spirits, ready to get back to work on behalf (of) all those that call Fort Bend County home, and expect to recover in a few days.”

George, who was elected county judge in 2018, was discharged from the hospital on Sunday evening and will work virtually for the next couple of days.
