Governor Set To Leave Hospital Again

Lexington, KY – An aide says Governor Fletcher is being released from St. Joseph's Hospital in Lexington Monday morning.
Fletcher had been hospitalized since Thursday after being diagnosed with a potentially life threatening blood clot.
Spokesman Brett Hall says the Governor will speak briefly with reporters before he leaves the hospital en route to the Governor's mansion in Frankfort.
The first term Republican Governor underwent procedures Thursday and Friday to remove the blood clot.
The 53 year old Fletcher was released from the same hospital March 1st after an 18 day stay during which time he had his gallbladder removed.
