U.S. Senator Mark Kirk's office has released a second video offering new details about Kirk's recovery from a debiliatating stroke in January.
The heavily-produced and edited video features Kirk discussing milestones in his rehabilitation, including work in improving his speech and mobility. In the video, he talks about conversing with his staff daily, meeting with congressional colleagues, and working with U.S. Senator Dick Durbin to choose a new U.S. Attorney to succeed Patrick Fitzgerald in Chicago.
Kirk says he is releasing the video to show other stroke patients and their families that they can recover.
