Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is out of the hospital after he was assaulted in their home last week, a source confirms to CBS News.

The speaker's office said last week that he was expected to make a full recovery, after undergoing surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands.

According to court documents and police, Mr. Pelosi was assaulted by a suspect who was looking for the speaker and attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer.

In a letter to fellow congressional members Saturday night, the speaker wrote that her family is "heartbroken and traumatized" after the attack on her husband.

"Our children, our grandchildren and I are heartbroken and traumatized by the life-threatening attack on our Pop," she wrote. "We are grateful for the quick response of law enforcement and emergency services, and for the life-saving medical care he is receiving."
