Texas Governor Greg Abbott Discharged From Brook Army Medical Center

Texas Governor Greg Abbott was discharged from the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio on Friday afternoon, following treatment for his 2nd and 3rd degree burns.

Governor Abbott sustained severe burns on his legs and feet last week while on vacation in Wyoming. The cause of the burns has not been made public.

Upon his return to the Lone Star State, the Governor rushed to Dallas to respond to the Dallas Police Ambush, but was hospitalized soon after.

Doctors on Monday found a minor infection that developed as a result of the burns and had to undergo a skin graft procedure.

Although Abbott was originally scheduled to be released on Tuesday, he stayed under the hospital's care until July 15 due to the infection.

The Governor said in a statement that he and his wife "are thankful to all the doctors and medical professionals at BAMC who provided excellent care during their stay this week, and to the public for their overwhelming support and prayers. "

Governor Abbott will be returning to Austin where he will continue to recover.
