Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and his wife, Kelley, posted a Happy Thanksgiving video on Twitter on Thursday, sharing thanks for the well wishes amid the conservative senator's recovery from an alleged attack at the hands of their neighbor.

"Thanks for your concern, your prayers, your thoughts, all your get well cards," Sen. Paul said. "It's been a rough couple weeks, but I'm starting to get better."

Paul has been recovering from six broken ribs in an attack that saw neighbor Rene Boucher get charged with misdemeanor assault for tackling the senator from behind.

"I've been in D.C. for a week," he said. "We're trying to make the tax cut a tax cut for everyone. We're working really hard on that. And we're looking forward to time with family and Thanksgiving."

Kelley Paul added "we're grateful for your prayers, your well wishes and your concerns," one day after her CNN op-ed where she wrote her husband "has not taken a single [breath] without pain" since the attack.

"It is incredibly hurtful that some news outlets have victimized Rand a second time as he struggles to recover, delighting in hateful headlines like 'Not A Perfect Neighbor,' and concocting theories about an 'ongoing dispute,' based on nothing more than speculation from an attention-seeking person with no knowledge of anything to do with us," she wrote.

"The fact is, neither Rand nor I have spoken to the attacker in 10 years (since before his wife and children moved away) other than a casual wave from the car. Nobody in our family has, nor have we communicated with anyone in his family. With Rand's travel to D.C. in the last seven years, he has rarely seen this man at all.

". . . This was not a 'scuffle,' a 'fight' or an 'altercation,' as many in the media falsely describe it. It was a deliberate, blindside attack. The impact left Rand with six broken ribs, three displaced, pleural effusion and now pneumonia. This has been a terrible experience; made worse by the media's gleeful attempts to blame Rand for it, ridiculing him for everything from mowing his own lawn to composting."
