ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – Dr. Jack Kevorkian should be released from the hospital within the next few days, according to his long time friend and health advocate.  Mike Morganroth says he visited the 83-year-old Kevorkian on Monday.

“He’s getting nutrition and food, because he was dehydrated, he had a problem with his nutrition. He had pneumonia, which seems to be pretty much under control … he’ll be getting out in the near future,” says Morganroth.

“He’ll be going to a rehab, in order to get his energy back, you know, PT (physical therapy) because he has been laying in bed so long,” adds Morganroth.

Kevorkian was admitted to the hospital on May 17th.

Morganroth says Kevorkian will spend the holiday sitting up and watching Judge Judy.

    Glad to hear he’s on the mend. He’s a tough character, an intellectual hero of mine, and someone I hope to have the privilege of meeting one day.

    We need more doctors like him. Too many “residents” in nursing homes see their physicians so seldomly they wouldn’t even know him if he walked in the door. “patient care” doesn’t really exist anymore, let alone dignity and human kindness. First do no harm, indeed. Kevorkian cares.
