NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – Saints legend Steve Gleason announced on Sunday (September 18) that he will be returning home after two nights in hospital to treat abnormally low sodium levels.
“I was going to sneak out of the hospital today and go 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: Inability to move his body and a feeling that he’s “quite conspicuous” in his custom wheelchair.
“The Ochsner team approved my discharge today,” Gleason continued. “So I won’t be in (the game), but I’ll be happy to watch!!”
Today I plan to sneak out of the hospital and go to the Dome to @Saint game. Two things: 1. I can’t move.
52. I’m definitely pretty conspicuous on my chair.
The Ochsner team approved my discharge today! So I’m not going into the game, but I’ll be happy to see!!
