Lubbock Mayor Glen Robertson has announced that he is back home recovering from heart surgery.
Robertson posted an update to his Facebook page on Sunday, thanking his family for their support and praising Mayor Protem Gibson and City Manager LeeAnn Dumbald for "covering for me in my absence."
Robertson said he will be back in the office next week but will likely miss the Jan. 31 council meeting.
The mayor said he should be back full time by the Feb. 14 meeting.
