Saints News, 2/24/15: Steve Gleason Hospitalized But 'Doing Better,' Set to Return Home

New, comments

From Nola.com: Steve Gleason, the former New Orleans Saints safety who has become a nationally renowned activist for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, was hospitalized over the weekend with pneumonia, but is expected to be released on Monday night, said Clare Durrett, associate executive director of Team Gleason. "(Steve) should be released tonight and will undoubtedly not slow down," Durrett said. ALS patients become susceptible to pneumonia as they lose the ability to breathe on their own. Aspiration pneumonia often occurs when food or fluid gets into an ALS patient's lungs. "Fortunately, it was discovered early," Durrett said.
