*B.B. King appears to have bounced back enough to go home from the hospital.
“I’m feeling much better & am leaving the hospital today,” said the musician in a 21-word post on his official website, Wednesday.
The 89-year-old blues legend’s daughter, Claudette King, told the Los Angeles Times that he had been hospitalized since the weekend for treatment of dehydration caused by Type 2 diabetes.
King also expressed his gratitude in the short message: “I want to thank everyone for their concern and good wishes.”
He was diagnosed with diabetes decades ago. In October, he canceled the remaining shows in his 2014 tour after falling ill in Chicago with dehydration and exhaustion.
