Former Mayor Daley remains hospitalized
For a third straight night former mayor Richard M. Daley has been undergoing test after test at northwestern memorial hospital.
It is still unclear what happened to the 71 year old Friday when he was a attending a business meeting in Arizona, but he felt ill and was disoriented–his family persuaded the former mayor to go from the airport straight to the hospital to be checked out.
Now the city and the people he led for 22 years are passing along their sincere best wishes.
Daley who fell ill on the same day his nephew pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter–is said to be resting comfortably surrounded by his family.
The former mayor has had some health issues in the past including the diagnoses of an irregular heartbeat several years ago.
A spokesperson for the mayor says he is expected to remain in the hospital until midweek.
