Sweeney Readmitted to Hospital, Pataki Recovering

Congressman John Sweeney was readmitted to Albany Medical Center Sunday night while experiencing symptoms that put him in the hospital last week.

Sweeney was first admitted last Wednesday after complaining of migraine headaches. The congressman was released on Friday after what the doctors called a sudden spike in blood pressure.

Sweeney's office says he is alert and feeling fine.

Meanwhile, Governor George Pataki still remains in a hospital bed in Manhattan. The governor had an emergency appendectomy performed on February 16th.

Last week, Pataki had surgery to correct a post-operative adhesion in his intestines. Pataki is expected to remain hospitalized for the next few days.
