Jackson and his family say they're grateful for the support and prayers.

No other details were released.

Jackson's whereabouts remained unclear Wednesday. Neither his staff nor family has said if he'll return to office after he won re-election last week. He didn't appear in Chicago or Washington after leaving Mayo.

Jackson's spokesman declined comment.

The Democrat has been on medical leave since June. He hasn't communicated with the public beyond a voter robocall.
