Jackson, Miss. A Republican congressman from north Mississippi has been moved from a Texas hospital to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where he will continue recovery from brain surgery.
Rep. Alan Nunnelee's office in Washington said that the congressman's "speech and left side mobility continue to improve."
Nunnelee had surgery last month at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to remove a small mass on his brain. The surgery, his office reported, caused speech and mobility problems and will require weeks of rehab and recovery.
In a statement Monday, his office reported Nunnelee will begin chemotherapy and radiation treatment this week.
The 55-year-old Nunnelee, of Tupelo, is a former state senator who was elected to Congress in 2010 and is seeking re-election this year.
