CHICAGO (AP) - Two-months after a health scare sent him to the hospital, former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley slipped quietly into U.S. Cellular Field to the watch the opening game of his beloved White Sox.

Daley told Chicago’s WLS-TV (https://bit.ly/1dJ1pp0) on Monday that he is “doing well,” but has been ordered by doctors to stay close to home.

Daley was a frequent traveler prior to his hospitalization. He was in Arizona at a conference for the Chicago law firm Katten Muchin Rosenman when he became disoriented. Daley spent eight days in intensive care at Northwestern Memorial Hospital after reportedly suffering a stroke, something he hasn’t confirmed.

Daley, Chicago mayor for over two decades, turns 72 in April.

Daley acknowledges he has slowed down a little bit, but asserts at his age, “why not?”
