( – On Saturday, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced that he had completed his inpatient therapy following his accident and concussion on March 8. He is now going to continue working from home before returning to work in the Capitol. This means that the GOP leader is only going to make his return to the Capitol after the end of the upcoming two-week recess over the Easter and Passover holidays. The Senate is going to return from recess the week of April 17.

In a statement on Saturday afternoon, McConnell expressed gratitude for everyone who had sent their well-wishes. He continued by saying that he had finished with inpatient therapy and that he was happy to have returned home. As per the instruction of his physical therapists, he added that he would continue to work from home while being in contact with his “Senate colleagues and staff.”

A McConnell aide also confirmed that he would only be returning to the Capitol after the recess, but they were not going to speculate about exactly when the Senator would return to the Senate. The source added when they have an update on his return they will provide that for everyone.

McConnell, 81, tripped and fell during a private dinner at Waldorf Astoria in downtown Washington. He suffered from a concussion and fractured rib which resulted in his hospitalization following the accident. After being released from the hospital he spent some time at an inpatient rehabilitation facility.
