Sen. Mark Kirk says "rehab works" after stroke
Friday - 5/3/2013, 7:00pm EDT
NORTH CHICAGO, Ill. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk says rehab worked after he suffered a stroke last year.
The Illinois Republican spoke Friday at a charter school in the northern Chicago suburbs along with fellow Sen. Dick Durbin. Kirk was asked about his health. On Friday he used a wheelchair at the school. He told the students "rehab works."
Kirk says he usually walks a block every morning at his Lake Forest home as part of his rehabilitation. The News-Sun in Waukegan reports (http://bit.ly/1253HE9) that the senator said the walk used to take 18 minutes, but "yesterday it took eight minutes."
In January, Kirk climbed 45 steps outside the Capitol in Washington to reach the Senate floor.
