Rep. Tom Dent, R-Moses Lake, was back at work Thursday after experiencing some dizziness on the floor of the state House of Representatives on Wednesday.
Emergency medical personnel were called and Dent was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia, according to a news release from his office.
“Initially there was speculation I had a heart attack. That is not the case. They ran numerous tests, including a CAT scan, which revealed my heart is in good condition,” he said in the release.
Dent said he has been recovering from a serious case of walking pneumonia the past couple of weeks. He was given fluids and released from the hospital after the tests were completed.
"Though my energy is a little low, I am feeling fine," he said. “I want to thank everyone for their concern, thoughts and prayers. There were numerous people around me offering their assistance."
