Kennedy Released From Hospital

Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) was released from a Boston hospital Wednesday morning and is returning to the family compound on Cape Cod.

Kennedy's doctors said in a statement that he is recovering "remarkably quickly" from a biopsy conducted Monday.

"He will return to his home on Cape Cod while we await further test results and determine treatment plans," said Dr. Lee Schwamm, the vice chairman of the Department of Neurology, and Dr. Larry Ronan, a primary care physician at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

"He's feeling well and eager to get started."
