Congressman Jackson is back at home

You might have missed the news from yesterday as posted on the CapFax via the Tribune:
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., has left the Mayo Clinic and is at home in the nation's capital with his family, an aide said today.

"He's home with his wife and children and he's convalescing," Rick Bryant, his chief of staff in suburban Chicago, told the Chicago Tribune.

Jackson, 47, was treated for bipolar depression at the clinic this summer.  He began a medical leave of absence June 10.

Congress returns Monday after a five-week summer recess. Bryant, asked whether Jackson would be in attendance, said: "I am hopeful that he'll be back on the job on Monday."

Bryant said he did not know the date Jackson checked out of Mayo. He said the congressman had planned to drive from Minnesota to his home in Washington.
Here's hoping that he's been treated and a speedy recovery.
