Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan said a mass removed from his spine on Oct. 11 has been found to be benign. In a statement issued Nov. 7, Morgan said he has returned home from the hospital and continues to work on his recovery.

“I have undergone extensive physical rehabilitation and have regained much of my mobility,” Morgan said in the statement. “There's more work to be done, and I'll be continuing my physical rehab on an outpatient basis.”

The mass was determined to be an intramedullary spinal cord arteriovenous malformation—a condition that creates problems with spinal cord blood flow—per the statement.

As Morgan continues to recover, he said he plans to resume mayoral duties soon.

“I look forward to resuming some of my official duties in the near future, and hope to be back at city council meetings later this month or the next,” he said in the statement.


Morgan added: “I'd like to thank my family, friends and members of the community for the incredible outpouring of support and prayers. It has made all the difference in the world, and makes me all the more eager to get back to serving you as your mayor.”
