Illinois' junior U.S. Senator Mark Kirk is moving home from a local rehab center after suffering a stroke in January.
Kirk's office says the Republican senator has "progressed to the point where he can move home with his family."
His office sent out a statement today at the request of Kirk's family. The senator has been recovering at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and will continue to do so, but as an out-patient.
Part of Kirk's skull was removed following the surgery to alleviate pressure, but doctors have said he's "mentally sharp."
