DETROIT, April 5 (UPI) -- Officials say Detroit Mayor Dave Bing has been hospitalized as a precaution because he was "experiencing some discomfort."
Bing, 68, was re-admitted to Henry Ford Hospital Wednesday because he was "experiencing some discomfort," his office said. He had surgery on March 24 to treat a puncture in his colon, and had to stay in the hospital for nine days. The Detroit Free Press reported he is expected to be out of his office for three weeks.
Bing's office says while he was recuperating at home, he was still involved in city affairs. He had a meeting with staffers prior to returning to the hospital Wednesday.
