Doctors have issued a positive report on Senator Mark Kirk's post-stroke recovery.

Dr. Richard Harvey says Kirk is fully engaged in his rehabilitation program. The senator has also been meeting with his staff, friends and family.

Kirk suffered a stroke earlier this year. Doctors say they believe he will make a full mental recovery, though he may not regain full use of his left arm and leg and may have some facial paralysis.
