ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is out of the hospital and back at work after his first round of chemotherapy for an aggressive form of cancer.

Hogan posted messages on social media Thursday saying, "It feels great to be back in Annapolis!"

He posted that he spent the morning catching up with staff and working.

The first-term Republican governor spent five days at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, receiving treatment for B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. When he announced the diagnosis June 22, he said the disease was at an advanced stage but his prognosis was good.

New Jersey governor and Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie says he and Hogan talked almost every day during Hogan's hospitalization. Christie and Hogan both have been wearing lime-green bracelets that say, "Hogan strong."
