Mayor doing fine in Houston hospital

Detroit-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick checked himself into a Houston-area hospital on Friday, July 8, after experiencing stomach pains; he was later diagnosed with a condition known as diverticulitis, an inflammation of the intestines.

Several reports released today indicate that the mayor has been receiving intravenous antibiotics and is doing fine. He is expected to return home sometime during the middle of the week. The Free Press reports that he will then be on bed rest for two weeks. Deputy Mayor Anthony Adams has assumed mayoral responsibilties until Kilpatrick fully recovers.

The mayor was in Houston attending a ministry conference as a private citizen.

    I have heard some real negative conversation on talk radio around Detroit in regards to Kwame’s farts. As funny as this is….
    I wish Mayor Kilpatrick well and hurry back to good health.

    I wonder if he put the flights for his family and pastor on the city’s credit card?

    …and the body guards he took with him, and the body guards that traveled with his pastor and family, and the back up body guards to protect the original body guards…and do you think that we, the city, will now have to hire a mayorial nutrionist, chef, life coach and personal trainer? at this rate he’s gopnna run out of friends before all those gigs are filled and he may even have to hire strangers.
