Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden returned to his downtown Wilmington office Wednesday, after a health scare last month had kept him away.

Biden returned to Delaware Aug. 22 after undergoing what Vice President Joe Biden and the Delaware Department of Justice would only call “a successful procedure,” at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Jason Miller, public information officer for Attorney General Biden, confirmed that Biden returned to the office Wednesday, and pointed out that he’s been “actively directing the office” over the past few weeks.  He had no further comment on the AG’s return.

Biden was first taken to the hospital in mid-August after he felt weak and disoriented during a family vacation in the midwest.  He was flown to Texas after meeting with his doctors in Philadelphia.  Biden suffered a mild stroke in 2010 that kept him out of the AG’s office for a few weeks. It’s not clear what ailment Beau Biden suffered from last month.

In early August, emergency responders were called to the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden, where Beau Biden has been living while a house he bought is being renovated. An official with the Cranston Heights Fire Company said that the department received a call for help from Biden’s home on Aug. 1.

Rickie Clark, a supervisor for the fire department, said the call for help was in reference to someone possibly having a stroke.
