Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KE) was released from his inpatient physical therapy on Saturday. McConnell entered physical therapy for a concussion he suffered during a fall earlier this month.
McConnell tripped and fell during a private dinner at Waldorf Astoria in Washington on March 8th. He spent several days in hospital with a concussion.
On March 13, he was discharged from the hospital and transferred to the inpatient rehabilitation facility.
McConnell,81, released a statement confirming “finished inpatient physical therapy” and would spend “the next few days” working from home on the advice of his physical therapists.
“I look forward to returning in person to the Senate soon,” McConnell added.
Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said on Tuesday that McConnell was “anxious to get back” to work.
The Senate starts its Easter recess on Thursday, so McConnell’s expected return date will be April 17th.
