Pawtucket mayor released from hospital

Donald Grebien

Pawtucket Mayor Don Grebien has been released from a Boston hospital after being treated for a spinal fluid leak.

The Pawtucket Times reports that Grebien was released from Brigham and Women's Hospital on Saturday.

He had been there for several days after complaining of flu-like symptoms including headaches and fatigue.

Grebien spokesman Douglas Hadden says the 46-year-old mayor underwent a successful non-invasive procedure to stop the leak.

Hadden says he is expected to return to work on a limited basis this week, and be back full time next week.

Grebien is running unopposed for a third 2-year term as mayor.
