Detroit Mayor Dave Bing has been released from the hospital, where he was being treated for blood clots in his lungs.
Bing's office says he left Henry Ford Hospital on Saturday. The 68-year-old was readmitted Wednesday to the hospital, where he'd recently undergone surgery for a perforated colon.
He was hospitalized on the same day that Detroit and state leaders announced a deal to head off the appointment of a state financial manager for the debt-ridden city. In Bing's absence, Deputy Mayor Kirk Lewis led negotiations with Gov. Rick Snyder's office on the deal.
Bing is expected to return to work by the end of the month. His office says he continues to be involved in city operations through regular meetings with Lewis and other members of the staff.
