Within A Month Of His Last Visit, Muhammad Ali Is Back In The Hospital
Muhammad Ali was admitted into an undisclosed hospital on Thursday for follow-up on a severe urinary tract infection. This will be his second stint in the hospital within the last month. A few weeks ago (Dec. 20), he was admitted for what doctors believed to be pneumonia, but was later diagnosed as a urinary tract infection.
No need to worry, though. He's in stable condition and isn’t expected to be there long. Bob Gunnel, the Ali family's spokesperson, says the three-time former heavy weight champion is presumed to be released later today. In the meantime, the champ is spending his time listening to music, reading and watching old movies.
Ali’s 31-year battle with Parkinson’s disease has not stopped him from getting out or continuing his humanitarian missions. Tomorrow (Jan. 17), Ali will be celebrating his 73rd birthday with family and his wife Lonnie.
Muhammad Ali and his center, The Muhammad Ali Center, in Louisville, Kentucky continues to dedicate time and effort to the causes Ali has been involved with since his retiring from boxing in 1979.
