Former U.S. Rep. John Dingell has suggested to his followers on Twitter that he may be released from a Detroit-area hospital Tuesday after suffering a heart attack.

The 92-year-old Dingell posted an update Monday saying, "The only internet rumor I care about right now is the breaking news that I could be released from the hospital as early as tomorrow."

Dingell is recovering from a heart attack he suffered Sept. 17.

He's the longest-serving member of Congress in U.S. history.

The Democrat was in office for nearly 60 years. He didn't run for re-election in 2014 and was succeeded by his wife, Debbie Dingell.
