Bernie Sanders 'up and about' after heart surgery

Today's Bernie Sanders health update is good.

He's recovering well after heart surgery, and his campaign says he plans to participate in the next Democratic presidential debate.

Statement from Jane Sanders, wife of Sen. Sanders:

"Bernie is up and about … We expect Bernie will be discharged and on a plane back to Burlington before the end of the weekend."

Sen. Sanders' presidential campaign events had been canceled after an operation to insert stents due to artery blockage.

"Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm feeling good," Sanders tweeted yesterday in his first public comments after hospitalization.
