ST. CLOUD -- Former State Representative Larry Haws of St. Cloud is recovering from brain surgery.

Larry's wife Faye says he was admitted to St. Cloud Hospital on Monday night.  Tests revealed he had fluid and a tumor on the right side of his brain.  He's still recovering in the I.C.U. unit today (Thursday).

Faye Haws says Larry has "not lost his sense of humor" and is "already driving the doctors and nurses crazy".  Haws served at the State Representative for House District 15B from 2005 through 2010.
