Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman was discharged from Lancaster General Hospital on Sunday after a nine-day stay following a stroke.
Fetterman, 52, who captured the Democratic nomination for the open U.S. Senate seat, was admitted to LGH and underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker with a defibrillator to assist in his recovery.
João is headed home ❤️ time to rest and recover (and annoy me)!
I’m so grateful for the amazing staff at Lancaster General for taking such good care of him from start to finish. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/cAzFY8ojQe

“I am feeling great, but per my doctor’s orders, and Gisele’s orders, I am going to continue to rest and recover,” Fetterman said in a statement. Later this week I will have a follow-up visit with my doctors at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital.
I want to take a moment and thank everyone; Gisele, myself, and the kids have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from folks across the commonwealth. Thank you everyone so much for having our backs and supporting us through this.”
