Senator Kennedy will return to his home in Hyannis Port from Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC, according to a statement from his Washington D.C. office.

“His doctors are pleased with his progress since surgery a week ago, and he will continue to recuperate at home before starting the next phase of his treatment. He is thankful for the extraordinary care of the doctors and nurses at Duke, and also for the continued prayers and well wishes from the people of Massachusetts and all over the country. In the interest of family privacy, there will not be regular updates regarding the Senator’s daily schedule or treatment plans moving forward.”

Kennedy, 76, the youngest brother of assassinated President JOHN F. KENNEDY, was diagnosed with the brain tumor last month.
