Saints legend Steve Gleason announces release from hospital


NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) — Saints legend Steve Gleason announced Sunday, Sept. 18, that he was returning home after a two-night stay in the hospital to be treated for abnormally low sodium levels.

“I was planning on getting out of the hospital today and going to the Dome for the Saints game,” Gleason tweeted.

But Gleason, diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) more than 11 years ago, joked that his escape plan had two problems: his inability to move his body and feeling he’s “quite visible in his personalized wheelchair.

“The Ochsner team approved my release today,” Gleason continued. “So I won’t be at (the) game, but I will watch with pleasure!!”
