WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Beau Biden, the Delaware attorney general and the son of Vice President Joe Biden, is being evaluated at a cancer center in Texas, according to people with knowledge of his condition.
Two people familiar with the situation said Biden was being evaluated Tuesday at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, one of the leading cancer centers in the nation. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak in an official capacity.
Biden's wife and other family members, including the vice president, were with him. The vice president's office said he planned to remain in Houston on Wednesday. A hospital spokeswoman said she did not have any information.
Beau Biden, who suffered a mild stroke in 2010, felt weak and disoriented on the night of Aug. 14 after driving to Indiana for a family vacation, said Jason Miller, a spokesman for the Delaware Department of Justice.
Biden, 44, was initially admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and traveled the next day to a Philadelphia hospital to consult with his doctor. He was discharged and spent last weekend at home in Wilmington.
The younger Biden posted a smiling photo of his wife Hallie and himself to his Twitter account Tuesday morning.
"Touched by all your well wishes--thank you. Nice evening in Houston w/ Hallie; will share update when we have it," the tweet read.
Miller said Monday night that Biden was undergoing testing in Houston to determine the cause of his symptoms, though he'd declined to say exactly where the testing was being done.
