Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is home with his family nearly three months into his medical leave of absence, according to his Chief of Staff.
"He's home with his wife and children and he's convalescing," Rick Bryant told the Chicago Tribune Friday.
Jackson had been at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for several weeks and was diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder, according to clinic staff.
The U.S. representative's return comes just at the end of a five-week summer recess for Congress, and Bryant said he's hoping Jackson will be back in action as early as Monday.
Bryant also said Jackson had made plans to drive from Minnesota to his home in Washington D.C., but did not confirm whether the congressman did so upon checking out of the clinic.
