Rep. Mark DeSaulnier was released from the hospital this weekend after a month-and-a-half-long stay due to pneumonia complications from a rib fracture the California Democrat sustained after falling during a run, his sons announced Monday.
“He’s eager to get back to California, but he’ll continue his recovery in Washington, D.C., until his doctors determine it’s safe to fly,” Tristan and Tucker DeSaulnier said in a statement, thanking everyone who has reached out with thoughts and prayers for their father.
Now, three weeks after moving out of intensive care, DeSaulnier has been released from the hospital.
“We are also eternally grateful to the doctors, nurses, and hospital staff who helped save our dad’s life,” Tristan and Tucker DeSaulnier said.
“While he’s made truly remarkable progress and has come so far, our dad still has work to do and we appreciate his friends and constituents affording him time and support as the next phase of his recovery begins,” they added.
