ROBYN BECK/AFP/GettyImages(WASHINGTON) — Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, underwent a “successful procedure” Tuesday and is in great shape, according to a statement issued by the vice president and his wife.

The Delaware attorney general is set to return home on Thursday. He spoke with the chief deputy attorney general and state prosecutor Wednesday regarding several Department of Justice issues and will follow up with business after his arrival.

Vice President Biden cancelled his Thursday plans to remain with his son in Houston, Texas, where he underwent evaluation at a cancer center after an episode of disorientation and weakness.

The vice president was set to attend a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee and an event at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island. The fundraiser has been called off.

Biden was also scheduled to travel to Maine for another fundraising event with New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan.

On Friday, he is scheduled to travel with President Obama to Scranton, Penn., his hometown, for the last stop on Obama’s two-day bus tour, but no word yet on whether he will make an appearance.

Biden’s son first experienced weakness and disorientation after driving to Indiana for a family vacation on Aug. 14 .

After being admitted to Northwestern University Hospital, he traveled to Philadelphia the next day to meet with his doctor at Jefferson University Hospital, according to the Delaware Department of Justice. The attorney general spent the weekend at home in Wilmington before traveling to Houston on Monday.

Beau Biden will follow up with his local physicians in the coming weeks.
