(Newser) – Ted Kennedy, who has been recovering from brain cancer and chemotherapy on Cape Cod, will return to his Washington home today. The 76-year-old senator is expected to stay until Thanksgiving before returning to his family's Hyannis Port compound. Kennedy has steadily increased his public activity since his seizure in May, surgery in June, and six weeks of subsequent radiation treatment.
