Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was “discharged from the hospital today,” his communications director, David Popp, said in a statement Monday.
“At the advice of his physician, the next step will be a period of physical therapy at an inpatient rehabilitation facility before he returns home,” Popp said. “Over the course of treatment this weekend, the Leader’s medical team discovered that he also suffered a minor rib fracture on Wednesday, for which he is also being treated.”
McConnell, 81, was hospitalized Wednesday after he fell at a private dinner and was treated for a concussion, his office said. By Friday, a political adviser who visited him in the hospital said, he was “doing well” and “eager” to leave.
