The office of U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd announced Tuesday that the ailing 91-year-old Democrat "has been released from the hospital and is at his West Virginia home recuperating from a more-than monthlong illness," The Associated Press reports.

The statement also said that Byrd is "continuing physical therapy as he recovers from a staph infection he contracted while hospitalized for another infection," that "he's looking forward to celebrating the nation's birthday with his family," AP reports.
