Gaoteote, who returned from the US last week, updated lawmakers on the health condition of the governor.
He said the governor, who is in a Seattle hospital, is recovering well and continues with medical check-ups.
He said he extended to Lolo, well wishes for a speedy recovery from the Senate, the Fono, and the people of American Samoa.
"The governor expressed appreciation, according to Gaoteote, and sends his regards and love", he said.
