Biden: Son Beau’s procedure success

DOVER, Del. – Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, the eldest son of Vice President Joe Biden, underwent a medical procedure at a Texas cancer center on Tuesday and will be returning soon to his home state, the vice president’s office said Wednesday.

In a statement released by the White House, Vice President Biden and his wife Jill said Beau Biden underwent “a successful procedure,” but they did not provide any details.

“He is in great shape and is going to be discharged tomorrow and heading home to Delaware,” the statement read. “He will follow up with his local physicians in the coming weeks.”

The White House declined to answer any questions about what procedure was performed, including whether it was diagnostic or therapeutic in nature.

Beau Biden, 44, was hospitalized last week after becoming weak and disoriented while on a family vacation in Indiana.

Biden was initially admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. He traveled the next day to the Philadelphia hospital where he had been treated for a minor stroke in 2010 to consult with his doctor. He spent last weekend at home in Wilmington before going to Houston, where he was admitted to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center this week.
