WASHINGTON (AP) — DOVER, Delaware (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden said his son has had a successful medical procedure in Texas, where he was being evaluated at a cancer center.

Biden and his wife, Jill, say their son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, is in great shape. They say he will be discharged from the hospital on Thursday and will return home. They say Beau Biden’s local doctors will follow up in Delaware.

There was no immediate word of what type of procedure was performed.

Beau Biden arrived on Monday in Houston for tests at a cancer center after becoming weak and disoriented while vacationing in Indiana last week.

Biden canceled a Democratic Party fundraiser Thursday to remain in Houston while his son was being evaluated at a Texas cancer center.
