Discharge for Cardinal George delayed by “bleeding episode”

.- The Archdiocese of Chicago said yesterday, that while Cardinal Francis George remains in stable condition, he has been held in the Intensive Care Unit due to an, “episode of bleeding” on Saturday morning.

A press release on the 69-year old Archbishop of Chicago who is recovering from two surgeries to combat bladder cancer, said that his vital signs are normal, blood counts are stable, and he has no fever.  

The cardinal is reportedly ready to get back to a more active life and had begun a solid food diet before bleeding was discovered on Saturday.  The archdiocesean press release said that the Cardinal underwent two tests Saturday and that the “episode of bleeding experienced early Saturday morning was self-limited.”

Catholics in the Archdiocese of Chicago and around the world continue to pray for the archbishop, who is considered one of the most brilliant in the Church. Prayers and get-well wishes for Cardinal George can be sent electronically by visiting the Archdiocese of Chicago web site at www.archchicago.org.
