(Newser) – Ted Kennedy waved to well-wishers and gave a smiling thumbs-up as he left Massachusetts General Hospital and headed for home this morning, a day after the discovery of a malignant brain tumor. “Senator Kennedy has recovered remarkably quickly from his Monday procedure and therefore will be released from the hospital today ahead of schedule,” his doctors said in a statement. The senator will recuperate in his Cape Cod home while doctors devise a treatment plan.
