Sen. Kennedy to be released from hospital following brain cancer surgery, son says

Sen. Edward Kennedy is expected to be released from the hospital a week after undergoing surgery in North Carolina for brain cancer.
Rep. Patrick Kennedy tells The Providence Journal that his father will be released Monday from Duke University Medical Center and will head home to Hyannis Port on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts.
The younger Kennedy made his comments at the Rhode Island Democratic Convention on Sunday.
The elder Kennedy underwent surgery last Monday to remove as much of the tumor as possible. Patrick Kennedy says the surgery went better than anyone expected.
The Democratic senator is expected to begin targeted radiation and chemotherapy treatment after returning home.
