Senator John Fetterman released from hospital

Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., was released from the hospital on Friday after two days of testing and observation after being hospitalized with dizziness, his communications director said.

Joe Calvello said Friday that the senator was “looking forward to returning to the Senate on Monday” after being discharged from George Washington University Hospital in Washington, DC at around 5 p.m. ET.

“In addition to CT, CTA and MRI tests ruling out a stroke, his EEG test results came back normal, with no evidence of seizures,” Calvello said. tweeted.

Fetterman, 53, was hospitalized on Wednesday. He said he felt giddy after attending a lawmakers retreat earlier in the day.

His staff members had taken him to the hospital, where doctors performed an MRI. Fetterman remained hospitalized Thursday as doctors performed additional tests and monitored him with an EEG for signs of a seizure.

Calvello said Thursday that after reviewing the MRI results, doctors ruled out a new stroke. The senator suffered a stroke during the election campaign last year.

Fetterman spoke about his recovery from that stroke and the ongoing challenges he has faced since then with auditory processing.
