Goodyear mayor released from hospital

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Jan. 27, 2012)  Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord was released Thursday from Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital, after being cleared by doctors to return home.

Mayor Lord was referred to Barrow Monday evening by West Valley Hospital, where she was first seen after experiencing transient neurologic symptoms. The symptoms resolved on their own and without surgery, and Mayor Lord returned home Thursday.

Mayor Lord began feeling poorly during a city council meeting Monday night. She turned the meeting over to Vice Mayor Joanne Osborne. She was admitted to West Valley Hospital, and subsequently transferred to St. Joseph's Hospital Barrow Neurological Institute.

"I want to thank everyone for all the get-well-wishes, calls, flowers and cards," said Mayor Lord. "I can't begin to express my appreciation for such wonderful expressions of care and concern."

Mayor Lord plans to take a few days off, and expects to return to work at City Hall sometime next week. In the meantime, Vice Mayor Joanne Osborne will continue to serve as acting mayor and will chair the City Council Worksession Meeting on Monday, Jan. 30.
