Spokesman Matt Hirsch said Abbott left San Antonio's Brooke Army Medical Center on Friday and is returning to the governor's mansion in Austin.
Abbott, a paraplegic who uses a wheelchair, sustained extensive second- and third-degree burns on his lower legs and feet after being scalded July 7 while in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. His office won't say exactly how he was burned.
Thanks to Brooke Army Medical for the professional care this week & grateful for your well-wishes. I continue to progress from my burns.— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) July 15, 2016
While recovering, Abbott developed a "minor infection," was hospitalized and had a skin graft Tuesday.
Abbott's injury occurred the same day a sniper killed five Dallas police officers. Abbott rushed to Dallas, but didn't divulge his injury for two more days.
