Cowichan's MLA Bill Routley is expected back in the saddle, part time, by mid-March after healing form heart surgery, his staff said Friday.

Doug Morgan said his boss is recovering at home after undergoing a valve-replacement operation Jan. 19 at Victoria's Royal Jubilee Hospital.

"Everything went really well but obviously Bill has to heal," he told the News Leader Pictorial.

"Everything turned out wonderfully. It's all good."

But it wasn't so good before Routley's operation, Morgan explained of the NDP member's exhaustion due to a gruelling political schedule.

"The doctors were clear that Bill had had this condition for a bit, and he feels a while lot better already."
