Ex-mayor Koch expects to leave NYC hospital Monday
NEW YORK (AP) -- A spokesman says former New York City Mayor Ed Koch (KAHCH') now expects to get out of the hospital on Monday.
Spokesman George Arzt said Friday that Koch expects to remain over the weekend at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia hospital.
He was admitted Saturday night with fluid in his lungs and swollen ankles. Doctors have told the 88-year-old ex-mayor to limit his salt intake.
Koch also was hospitalized in December with a respiratory infection and in September with anemia.
