Setback for Chicago's Cardinal George

Aug. 7, 2006 at 9:18 AM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- The Chicago archdiocese reports Cardinal Francis George is in stable condition after experiencing a complication of his surgery for bladder cancer.

Doctors discovered blood in George's stool on Saturday along with a drop in his red blood count, the Chicago Tribune says.

As a result, tests were performed to examine his colon.

The complication forced the cardinal to return to a liquid diet and has delayed his release from the intensive care unit at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.

A spokesperson for the Chicago archdiocese said the cardinal's vital signs were normal on Sunday and his blood counts were stable but he remained in intensive care for observation.
