Barry readmitted to hospital for allergic reaction
Question of the Day
D.C. Council member Marion Barry was readmitted to Howard University Hospital after he was released from the facility Monday, his spokeswoman said.
Mr. Barry, Ward 8 Democrat and former Washington mayor, was readmitted overnight for what the council member’s spokeswoman, Natalie Williams, described as an “allergic reaction.”
She said he was expected to be released later Tuesday. No further details were immediately available.
Mr. Barry, 73, drove himself to the hospital on Oct. 5 because he was not feeling well. He was treated for dehydration. Doctors moved him to the ICU to treat him more aggressively.
In February Mr. Barry received a kidney from a friend after spending months on dialysis.
Barry spokeswoman Natalie Williams said the illness does not indicate any problem with transplant and that mild infections are common in kidney transplant patients.
