Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden underwent medical tests Tuesday in Houston, Texas, to investigate the cause of symptoms he felt last week, the Department of Justice said in a statement.

Biden, who is the son of Vice President Joe Biden, tweeted a message and photograph Tuesday morning:

Touched by all your well wishes–thank you. Nice evening in Houston w/ Hallie; will share update when we have it. -bb pic.twitter.com/n1iT7oUHHM

He was admitted last week to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago after feeling weak and disoriented following a drive to Indiana for a family vacation, according to the statement. He spent the weekend home in Wilmington, Del., after consulting with his doctor in Philadelphia.

The vice president reportedly accompanied his eldest son to the hospital in Houston.
