ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — After his latest round of cancer treatment, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says his prognosis is great and he feels strong.

Hogan posted on Facebook Tuesday evening that he is happy to be leaving the hospital in Baltimore and heading back to Annapolis.

The governor says he has two months of treatment left, but he has completed two-thirds of his treatment. He says he has had three minor surgical procedures, three spinal taps and 20 chemotherapy sessions of 24 hours each. Last month, Hogan said doctors told him that scans showed 95 percent of his cancer was gone.

Hogan has remained active throughout his treatment for B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which includes five-day stays at University of Maryland Medical Center every three weeks.
