Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, son of Vice President Biden, "underwent a successful procedure" in Houston on Tuesday and will be discharged on Thursday, according to a statement from the vice president and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden.
"Yesterday, our son Beau underwent a successful procedure," the Bidens said in a statement released this afternoon. "He is in great shape and is going to be discharged tomorrow and heading home to Delaware. He will follow up with his local physicians in the coming weeks."
The statement did not detail what procedure Beau Biden underwent.
Beau Biden traveled to Houston on Monday for medical evaluations after experiencing weakness and disorientation last week. The vice president accompanied his son to Texas on Monday and remained with him throughout the week.
The Delaware attorney general first experienced weakness and disorientation after driving to Indiana for a family vacation on Wednesday and was admitted to Northwestern University Hospital. He traveled to Philadelphia to meet with his doctor at Jefferson University Hospital on Thursday before spending the weekend at home in Wilmington.
On Tuesday, the younger Biden tweeted a photo of him and his wife, Hallie, and thanked those who had sent him well wishes.
Touched by all your well wishes-thank you. Nice evening in Houston w/ Hallie; will share update when we have it. -bb pic.twitter.com/n1iT7oUHHM
