.- Bishop Francis DiLorenzo is expected to be back in his office today after having been admitted to hospital Tuesday.

The 62-year-old bishop of the Diocese of Richmond underwent a series of tests at Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center in Portsmouth June 8 because he felt dizzy and lightheaded, Dana Erby, a secretary at the diocese, told The Associated Press.

A doctor admitted him as a precaution and a number of tests were ordered, which showed nothing wrong, she reportedly said. The bishop was released the same day.

Bishop DiLorenzo, who was installed as bishop of Richmond less than a month ago, had a minor heart attack three years ago. He has been on a diet since then to lose weight and now weighs about 300 pounds.
