Schwarzenegger heads back to work after feeling ill, being hospitalized
Thursday, December 8, 2005Arnold Schwarzenegger, Republican governor of California, bodybuilder and famous Hollywood celebrity, was hospitalized this week around midnight local time, at the advice of his doctor. He was taken to the UC Davis Medical Center due to a rapid heartbeat and symptoms of the stomach flu.
Hours after being admitted to the hospital, Schwarzenegger was released and has returned to work. Schwarzenegger, who is 58 years of age, underwent surgery in 1997 related to a valve in his heart.
Spokesperson Margita Thompson has stated that, "He was observed for a few hours and released. He's feeling fine this morning and is in the office working." She went on to say that a rapid heart beat is fairly common for the type of heart procedure that he had done in the past.
