The Illinois Republican was greeted at the foot of the Capitol steps by an open-armed Vice President Joe Biden.
In the greeting, Kirk says he wished he could be there, calling it an exciting moment and “one of the most important elections we’ve ever had.”
Cardiac surgeon Dr. Jennifer Lawton says heart attack symptoms for women are atypical of the chest pain symptoms experienced by men.
U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk has released a second video message detailing his recovery after a January stroke.
“I want to thank everyone especially for the patience they have given me to recover from a big stroke,” said Kirk.
Kirk’s office released the statement Thursday saying the Illinois Republican has recovered to the point where he can move home with his family.
The photo, taken April 19, shows Kirk talking with visiting staff members at the center.
The 52-year-old Republican was in good health when he had a stroke last month.
Neurosurgeon Richard Fessler says Kirk is alert, talking and responding well to questions.
Doctors say he’s making progress, but recovery will be a long process
