President Obama Puts In “Get Well” Call To Detroit Mayor

DETROIT (WWJ) –  Detroit Mayor Bing remains hospitalized and apparently he has received a get well wish from a big VIP.

WWJ’s Sandra McNeill reports that Detroit Mayor Dave Bing received a get well message from President Obama Friday.

A spokesperson says that the President spoke to him for about five minutes on the phone.

Bing put out a message on Twitter Friday afternoon that said, “Thank You President Barack Obama for calling & well wishes.”

The mayor was re-admitted to Henry Ford Hospital Wednesday and is receiving treatment for acute pulmonary embolism in each lung.

The mayor underwent surgery for a perforated colon a week ago and felt some “discomfort” earlier this week.

There’s no word on when Bing will be released from the hospital.
