Soderlund says Fiorina will resume her full campaign schedule Thursday.

Fiorina was sidelined by an infection related to her recent reconstructive surgery for breast cancer. The first-time candidate, who is 56, was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2009 before she formally announced her run against Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.
