State Rep. Russ Mobley, R-Campbellsville, is recovering from surgery performed last week to repair a fractured hip.

According to Mobley's daughter, Suzanne Bennett, he fell in the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 5 when he had gotten out of bed.

Bennett said Mobley had limited mobility before he fell, and fractured his left hip in the fall.

Mobley was taken to Flaget Memorial Hospital in Bardstown. He underwent surgery last Monday afternoon and is currently in rehabilitation.

Bennett said Mobley is expected to stay at the hospital through this week and is in good spirits.

She said he has been visited by several people and received cards and flowers and is very appreciative.

Mobley, a former Campbellsville University drama professor, will vacate his state representative seat when his term ends this year.

In a press release issued earlier this year, Mobley cited health issues as his reason for stepping down after eight years in office.
