Former Chicago Mayor Daley to leave hospital

CHICAGO (AP) — Former Mayor Richard M. Daley will be leaving a hospital Saturday after more than a week of tests to determine why he was feeling ill and disoriented during a business trip.

Jodi Kawada Page is a spokeswoman for law firm where Daley works. She says in a written statement that Daley will be leaving Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital around midday Saturday. No other details were immediately released on his health condition.

The 71-year-old Daley was taken by ambulance to the hospital's intensive care unit on Jan. 31 upon returning from a conference in Scottsdale, Ariz.

He had been complaining of feeling ill during the conference and was met by an ambulance after flying back to Chicago.
