MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell provided an update on his recovery Sunday night, telling his followers on Twitter that he is now able to walk “short distances” without the use of a cane.
O’Donnell sent the tweet after he a boarded a flight to New York City. He had been undergoing physical therapy for the last seven weeks in California after suffering a car accident while on vacation in the British Virgin Islands.
On plane to NY. 7 weeks in CA has healed me. I can now walk without a cane. Short distances. Thanks to great Santa Monica phys therapists.

O’Donnell made an emotional return last month to his nightly program, “The Last Word.” He recounted his accident and even thanked the conservative benefactor David Koch for donating millions to the hospital where he was treated.
