ATLANTA – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., was released from Northside Hospital Thursday after being admitted earlier in the week with a bacterial infection.
"Senator Isakson is still recovering from the bacterial infection, but his doctors felt that his condition has improved enough that he could go home and continue his recovery there. Senator Isakson is feeling so much better and he is glad to get back home. He and his family are very appreciative of all the prayers and good wishes they have received this week," spokeswoman Joan Kirchner said.
One of Isakson's attending physicians at Northside, Dr. Steven Marlowe, said bacterial infections typically require lots of rest on the patient's part before they are fully recovered.
