(MAINNEWS) – U.S. Senator John Fetterman was discharged from George Washington University Hospital on Friday, his staff said, two days after he was admitted to the Washington, D.C., facility because he was feeling lightheaded.

Fetterman, 53, suffered a stroke last year. Tests showed he did not suffer a second stroke during the latest incident, the hospital said.

“In addition to the CT, CTA, and MRI tests ruling out a stroke, his EEG test results came back normal, with no evidence of seizures,” the senator’s office said in a written statement. “John is looking forward to spending some time with his family and returning to the Senate on Monday.”

Fetterman had a stroke last year while campaigning for one Pennsylvania’s two U.S. Senate seats.

It initially left lingering problems with his speech and hearing that sometimes cause verbal miscues, but Fetterman’s doctor has said the politician could serve in office with no restrictions as long as he followed recovery instructions.

Fetterman, in a statement on his recovery last year, said he had been diagnosed with a heart condition years earlier but had stopped taking his medication, avoided going to the doctor and ignored warning signs.
