Toronto Mayor Rob Ford checked himself into Humber River Regional Hospital after feeling unwell Tuesday night.
"The mayor is currently under observation as a precautionary measure and is expected to make a full recovery," read a statement by press secretary George Christopoulos late Tuesday night.
UPDATE: Ford is said to be "feeling much better" after undergoing a series of tests Wednesday, according to Christopoulos. He was released Thursday afternoon after spending two nights in hospital and receiving treatment for a stomach and throat irritation relating to something he ate. I also aggravated his asthma.
According to the Toronto Star, the reason for the visit is only being described as a stomach ailment and his brother, Coucillor Doug Ford, said he is doing fine.
