A new report has indicated that Senator John Fetterman could be returning to his role in the office as soon as the week of April 17th, all in the wake of getting treatment for his anxiety and depression from doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
As explained in a report made public this past Wednesday by Politico, sources nearby to the recently elected Keystone State senator have explained that he has recovered well and is now ready to start back up with his work as soon as possible.
Just a few weeks ago, Fetterman elected to check himself into the medical facility to receive treatment, claiming that he had been officially diagnosed with anxiety and clinical depression -- conditions that he has been made to deal with in the past but have recently been pushed to the foreground in the wake of his near-fatal stroke, the tight senate race and campaign, and his first few days in office.
A report from CNN explained that a source known to be very close to the senator had spoken up to indicate that he would likely be "as good or better than his best days post-stroke," going further to say, "He’s doing extremely well."
Another Democrat from Pennsylvania, fellow Senator Bob Casey, explained to The Hill that he had paid a visit to Fetterman over the past few days -- while he was quite clear that he was not at all qualified to issue a medical report on his fellow senator, he did explain that he was quite happy to see just how well Fetterman appeared to be doing.
"It was just remarkable how good he looked, how good he sounded. My sense is he’ll be in better shape than he was even before his stroke. He’s really, really in good shape," stated Casey.
Senator Time Kaine (D-VA) also spoke up to say that in addition to Fetterman, he also expected to see the return of Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in the same timeframe.
"That’s what we’re hearing," expressed Kaine. Feinstein has been missing since this past February from the deliberative body in the wake of her announcing that she had been officially diagnosed with shingles.
also not showing up in the Senate in for the past few weeks was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who has been dealing with a recent fall that caused a rub fracture along with a concussion.
