Biden son progresses at Pa. hospital after stroke

May 12, 2010 10:33:00 PM - thestate.com
Vice President Joe Biden's elder son, Delaware's attorney general, made progress Wednesday as he recovered from a mild stroke and hopes to return to work soon, his office said.

Beau Biden, 41, was being treated at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, a renowned neuroscience hospital in Philadelphia, a day after suffering the stroke.

"He will continue to follow standard protocol and receive medical therapy over the coming days, as is typical for any patient recovering from an event like this," the Delaware Department of Justice said in a statement. "He looks forward to returning to his duties as attorney general in the near future."

The vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, were in Philadelphia on Wednesday, but he returned to Washington to host a dinner for Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday night. Joe Biden is one of the Obama administration's major voices in setting Afghanistan policy.

Biden said his son was doing well.
