posted at 12:51 pm on April 30, 2007 by Ian

White House press secretary Tony Snow returned today after taking several weeks off for cancer surgery. According to Fishbowl DC, Snow received a standing ovation when he arrived. Talking about his cancer, Snow said “you never anticipate this stuff…it just happens.” Snow thanked everyone for praying for him, saying “anybody who does not believe that thoughts and prayers make a difference are just wrong.” Snow said he was “unbelievably lucky and unbelievably blessed.”

Fishbowl DC has more pictures and quotes.

Welcome back Tony, it is we who are blessed to have you.
Who is the jerk who looked at his watch? I was going to say nappy-headed jerk, but that would not be nice.

P.S. Now that Dana’s mornings are free maybe she can do a Vent now and then.

” Faith, Hope and Love” is what Tony said is needed to get thru these trying times.

You’re a Good Man Tony Snow.

The docs gave my husband 3 months……he died 5 1/2 years later. It is a matter sometimes of good thoughts, prayers and a positive attitude. God bless you Tony and all the best. Great to have you back.

Well…it didn’t look like Tony received a standing ovation upon entering…what was Fishbowl DC looking at?

Glad to hear he’s doing well fighting cancer.

I will miss seeing Dana though.

God bless Tony…I can’t imagine having that job for the past few years…he’s smooth as silk…glad to see him back and glad to see he will be making CNP after all.

Dana handled herself and the post very well. Not to say Tony wasn’t missed, but she filled the post with vigor. Tony is a strong individual, and it takes courage so speak on a personal level to people who do nothing but attack him weekly. Class.
