BALTIMORE (AP) — Judge Catherine Curran O’Malley, the wife of Gov. Martin O’Malley, was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon, a day after being admitted when she became short of breath at a benefit lunch, the governor’s office said.

Mrs. O’Malley, 44, underwent a series of tests yesterday morning at the University of Maryland Medical Center. She walked out of the hospital with her husband at about 7 p.m., smiling.

She wasn’t specific about what doctors told her.

“After they even explained it to me, I couldn’t remember the words,” she said. “They’re very big, but nothing life-threatening or severe, and all I have to do is take some aspirin every day and I’m going to be A-OK.”

She was attending the seventh annual House of Ruth Maryland spring lunch at M&T; Bank Stadium on Tuesday. After she spoke to the audience, she felt ill and was taken by ambulance to the hospital, which is blocks from the stadium.

The governor’s press office later said she was “feeling well and resting fine.” She spent the night at the hospital for monitoring.

The governor postponed an event at DuVal High School in Prince George’s County yesterday morning in order to be at the hospital. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown was scheduled to substitute for the governor at the Tech Council of Maryland’s annual dinner last night in Bethesda.

Mrs. O’Malley is an associate judge on the Baltimore District Court.
