Detroit Mayor Thanks Well-Wishers During Recovery

DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit Mayor Dave Bing is saying “thank you” to his well-wishers as he recovers at home.

Bing underwent surgery after doctors found blood clots in his lungs.

In an editorial in the Detroit Free Press, the mayor says his recovery is on track and he expects to be back in the office by the end of this month.

In mid-march the Mayor underwent surgery that was needed to repair a perforation of the intestines, according to a statement from Communications Director Bob Warfield.

On April 5, CBSDetroit.com reported that Mayor Bing was being treated for acute pulmonary embolism.

“Mayor Bing is being treated for acute pulmonary embolism in each lung,” said Dr. John Popovich, president and CEO of Henry Ford Hospital and a board-certified pulmonologist with extensive experience and research with this disorder.
