Singer Lightfoot Released From Hospital

Gordon Lightfoot has been released from a Canadian hospital after three months of treatment for a bleeding disorder, the Associated Press reports. The 64-year-old singer-songwriter was airlifted on Sept. 8 to McMaster Medical Center in Hamilton, Ontario, with internal bleeding from an abdominal aneurysm. His surgeon, Dr. Michael Marcaccio, said that Lightfoot’s “physical fitness and personal strength have helped him overcome a life-threatening condition.” A spokesman for Lightfoot said he would be recuperating at home with his wife and two young children and said the singer wanted any further details kept private. 12/16/02
