Mayor Richard Daley and his wife, Maggie, leave Northwestern Memorial Hospital after the mayor was hospitalized for two days in December 2002. Hours before Daley was released from a two-day hospitalization brought on by stomach flu, physicians said they had detected a brief abnormal heart rhythm in the mayor. Emerging from the hospital on a Sunday evening, the mayor said the episode had left him tired, humbled and a bit frightened. But he said he hoped to be back at work Monday.
