Thomas Returns To Work

Washington D-C – Senator Craig Thomas is back to work on
Capitol Hill.
The state's senior returned to work today (Monday) -- about a
month earlier than originally thought.
The 73-year-old Thomas was released over the weekend from the
Washington D-C area hospital where he had been undergoing treatment
for leukemia.
He began treatment for leukemia on November ninth.
Previously, Thomas said he didn't expect to return to the Senate
until January.
But he says in a statement that doctors were encouraged by his
quick recovery after just three weeks of treatment for the cancer.
Doctors say most people in good physical condition like Thomas
attain remission of the cancer.
Thomas thanked those who supported him and his family.
