According to The Columbus Dispatch, "it wasn't clear where the surgery occurred or where Armstrong was recuperating." The newspaper adds that:
"Armstrong and his wife married in 1999 and made their home in the Cincinnati suburb of Indian Hill, but he has largely stayed out of public view in recent years. He spoke at Ohio State University during a February event honoring John Glenn and the 50th anniversary of Glenn becoming the first American to orbit Earth."
"For a country that has invested so much for so long to achieve a leadership position in space exploration and exploitation, this condition is viewed by many as lamentably embarrassing and unacceptable," Armstrong told lawmakers.
