Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., was released from the hospital Friday after two days of tests and observation after being admitted for feeling lightheaded, according to his communications director.
Joe Calvello, the senator’s spokesman, said Friday that he was “looking forward to returning to the Senate on Monday” after being released from George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., around 5 p.m. ET.
“His EEG test results came back normal, with no evidence of seizures, in addition to the CT, CTA, and MRI tests ruling out a stroke,” Calvello tweeted.
Fetterman, 53, was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday. He claimed to be dizzy after attending a legislators’ retreat earlier that day.
His staff had taken him to the hospital, where doctors performed an MRI. Fetterman remained in the hospital on Thursday while doctors performed additional tests and monitored him with an EEG for signs of seizure.
Calvello stated on Thursday that doctors ruled out a new stroke after reviewing the MRI results. Last year, the senator suffered a stroke while campaigning.
Fetterman has been open about his recovery from the stroke and the ongoing difficulties he has had with auditory processing since then.
