Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said he's fine and leaving the hospital with plans to return to work on Wednesday. The combative conservative said tests show nothing wrong after he was hospitalized with chest pains.
He remained at a hospital in Hawaii Thursday night, a day after being admitted for chest pains.
According to his radio program, Limbaugh underwent a complete examination on Thursday that gave doctors more information about his condition.
Walter E. Williams, who filled in for Limbaugh on his radio show, offered a brief update on the host's condition.
"Rush continues to rest very comfortably in the hospital in Honolulu this afternoon," Williams said.
Limbaugh was in Hawaii for a Christmas vacation. He was spotted golfing earlier in the week at the Waialae Country Club.
On Wednesday, he was taken from the Kahala Hotel and Resort to Queens Medical Center after complaining of chest pains.
"Those pains were the kind of pains that makes one feel like he has a heart attack coming on, but it's not been confirmed that it was a heart attack," Williams said. "Rush is in good and stable condition. (He's) comfortable, as comfortable as one can be in a hospital while on vacation and he's in good hands."
On Friday, Limbaugh held a conference to brief reporters at the Cardiac Comprehensive Care Unit of the hospital.
"I experienced pain in my upper left chest like I had never felt before," Limbaugh said. ()
