Latest Test Clears Albright-Dieterle To Go Home
MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ A test Friday found no sign of bleeding around the brain and Wisconsin women’s basketball coach Jane Albright-Dieterle was cleared to leave the hospital Sunday.
Albright-Dieterle’s neurologist, Dr. Mary Dominski, said the test, called an arteriogram, found no aneurism, no sign of continued bleeding and nothing abnormal.
The 40-year-old coach had been hospitalized since suffering severe head pain during an awards banquet last Saturday.
She went to the emergency room at St. Marys Hospital and was rushed into intensive care. A spinal tap showed blood in her spinal column and other tests showed blood around her brain.
Albright-Dieterle said she knew Friday’s test was going well because the medical team was chatty, in contrast with the somber demeanor they exhibited during tests Saturday night.
The chance of renewed bleeding was no greater for Albright-Dieterle than for anyone who had never had the problem, Dominski said.
Albright-Dieterle said she was happy with the outcome and was looking forward to spending the next several weeks at home. She said her husband, Dave, was going to be doing the cooking at home for a while.
``I’ve never had a couple weeks rest in my life,″ she said.
No festivities were planned for the coach’s release, hospital spokeswoman Jeanne Dosch said.
``She’s just going to slip out quietly on Sunday,″ Dosch said.
