North Dakota Governor Admitted To Hospital
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ North Dakota Gov. George Sinner was listed in good condition after he was hospitalized today with an apparent intestinal problem, a spokesman said.
″He was very weak ... he just did not feel well at all,″ said Bob Schuller, spokesman for St. Alexius Medical Center in Bismarck.
Sinner’s physician, Dr. Ralph Dunnigan, said the 57-year-old governor was suffering from bleeding in his upper intestinal tract. The ailment is similar to a bleeding ulcer and is not uncommon, he said.
″We’re certainly not anticipating any surgery at all at this time,″ Dunnigan said. He said the problem can probably be solved by using medication.
The ambulance was called after Sinner told his wife, Jane, that he did not feel well enough to travel to the hospital by car, Schuller said. The governor’s mansion is about a mile from the hospital.
