CHICAGO -- After a week’s stay at Loyola Medical Center, Cardinal Francis George returned home Saturday.
Chicago’s former archbishop is no longer receiving treatment to help with his battle against cancer.
WGN stopped by the cardinal’s residence, and it was confirmed that Cardinal George has made it home from the hospital.
George is resting now; and when asked of his condition, a spokesperson at the residence said, “He’s fine.”
The Diocese is not releasing any more details than that.
Earlier in the week, the Chicago Diocese issued a statement, saying Cardinal George was admitted to Loyola Medical Center in Maywood for a round of tests to evaluate his condition.
He went in Sunday and didn’t return home until today.
The cardinal has been battling with cancer on and off since 2006. Last spring, he shared publicly the disease had returned and was showing signs of activity in his right kidney.
In November, the archbishop emeritus retired from his post leading Chicago’s 2.2 million Catholics.
