Kitchener-Conestoga MP Harold Albrecht is at home recovering after a minor stroke.
He was treated at Grand River Hospital.
"I and my family appreciate all the kind thoughts extended and prayers offered on our behalf." Albrecht said in a statement.
"We cannot overstate our thanks to the Medical staff at the Grand River Hospital for the excellent care that I received from them! Grand River Hospital truly is a world class facility." he added.
Due to the number of follow up appointments and tests he must undergo and on the advice of his doctors, he will be delaying his return to Parliament for two weeks.
In the interim, he will work out of his constituency office in Kitchener.
Albrecht has represented the riding since 2006.
