ATLANTA, April 3 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., is out of the hospital after being treated for a heart problem and blood clot in his leg, hospital officials said.
The 65-year-old senator, who had been admitted to Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta Monday because of an irregular heart beat, was released Friday afternoon because his doctor said he was "doing very well," The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
"He will be coming in for regular follow-ups so we can monitor his progress," Isakson's cardiologist, Dr. Charles Brown III, said.
It was the second hospital stay in two weeks for Isakson, who was treated for a bacterial infection at Northside Hospital last week.
Politico reported a spokeswoman for Isakson said he would be getting back to his normal routine. The Senate is on recess until April 12.
"Senator Isakson is in good spirits and is very glad to be home," the Washington publication quoted spokeswoman Joan Kirchner as saying. "He and he and his family are so appreciative of all the good wishes they have received over the past two weeks."
