Nunnelee was hospitalized in May after experiencing nausea and fatigue, with doctors finding what Nunnelee describes as an "isolated" intracranial mass on the right side of his brain.

The 55-year-old says staff will keep him informed of legislative business during his recovery.

First elected to the U.S. House in 2010, Nunnelee is seeking re-election.
