TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - State Rep. Steve Holland is in a Tupelo hospital for treatment of another abdominal infection.

The 59-year-old Holland, a Democrat from Plantersville, tells local media outlets that he entered the North Mississippi Medical Center last Tuesday and expects to remain for another week.

Holland has struggled in recent years with infections and stomach issues. Holland missed much of the 2014 session when he suffered spikes in his blood pressure before undergoing major gallbladder surgery.

Holland had three procedures related to the ruptured gallbladder and was discharged from University Medical Center in Jackson in early February. He returned home to his farm in Plantersville to recover and returned for the end of the 2014 session in early March.

Holland has been in the Legislature since 1984. He is unopposed for re-election this year.
