ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI-myFOXstl.com) -- Late Wednesday night, former New York governor and Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani went to Barnes-Jewish hospital after feeling ill.
Giuliani had traveled across Missouri Wednesday by car after mechanical problems on his aircraft left him without a plane for his stumping.
The statement from the Giuliani campaign reads:
"ST. LOUIS - Rudy Giuliani Communications Director Katie Levinson released the following statement this morning:
Earlier today, Mayor Giuliani experienced flu-like symptoms campaigning in Missouri. The symptoms worsened as the day wore on and shortly after taking off from Chesterfield, Missouri for New York the Mayor became uncomfortable enough that our plane returned to the airport in Chesterfield. To be on the safe side, the Mayor consulted with his personal physician in New York and made the decision to go to the Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis for routine tests.
"The Mayor will spend the night in St. Louis and we will provide another update in the morning."
Not a fan, but hope he gets his health back quickly.
Weenie. I’ve never gone to a hospital because of flu-like symptoms I just tough it out. Like a man.
I suppose I should say the same thing. Maybe a little less quickly... ;-)
Rudy’s Nom contract is down 4 points at Intrade, possibly on this news.
According to Intrade, the winner of the December 12th GOP debate was... Duncan Hunter.
Get back on your feet Rudy. We want to beat you, but we want you to be healthy.
Motion sickness maybe? I hope he's ok.
I remember my first experience with motion sickness "or vertigo"
when I played Warbirds many many years ago. It's similar to the flu imo.
Check him for Polonium 28. And Anthrax.
That's the funniest thing I've seen all week.
Get well, Mayor Giuliani. And then go healthily back to private life where you belong.
I hope he recovers fully.
And Hillary's sugar cookies.
It’s possible “flu-like symptoms” are a euphemism for diarrhea; he may have been admitted for dehydration and much needed iv fluids.
I will definitely pray for the Mayor. Politics aside, I like him. What’s amazing is that more of the candidates don’t get really sick, being in the crowds they have to be in every day, shaking hands, etc. I’d buy purell by the gallon. Hope he has a speedy recovery.
Yeah, Hillary had a convenient ‘illness’ to garner sympathy a while back too.
But Rudy, if you’re really sick physically, prayers up.
And a prayer for the repentance and healing of your SOUL.
Politics aside, wishing the former mayor a swift recovery.
That's part of the problem. People go to the hospital for measliest of reasons.
Now, if he had measles, then I might cut him some slack.
I doubt this is because he is a sissy. Influenza can go into pneumonia quickly when you’ve had cancer, because your immune system never fully recovers.
Since Rudy has had cancer, and it is in remission, getting the flu OR having flu-like symptoms can be serious. My mom had to judiciously guard her health after breast and lung cancer.
“Not a fan, but hope he gets his health back quickly.”
No matter my differences, I wish him no suffering.
Who know...it could be something more significant?
No wonder we got problems. Everyone's a hypochondriac.
Anyone know which Holiday Inn he's staying at tonight?
Real prayers up for Mayor Giuliani to get well soon.
You could be right. Maybe he is suffering from acute constipation because he got his panties in a bunch on account of he had to travel across the state by car instead of by aircraft. Poor baby.
I'm almost having sympathy pains for him. I hate it when my private aircraft has mechanical problems.
You couldn’t possibly be from Texas. Every Texan I’ve ever met was polite and had manners.
This should get him some points in the polls, at least temporarily. Sympathy goes a long way.
lol....I’m guess you really don’t like the man...? That’s okay, I’m on the fence. I don’t like his politics, but I’m not sure I dislike the man enough to feel anything about him—personally.
Read the profile. :) You’ll like it.
Prayers for his health.
Hope he gets well very soon.
Wishing Rudy a fix to whatever may be the problem.
LOL! That explains why they have no police officers and no jails in Texas. Because everyone is polite and mannericious
And besides, Texans don't go to the hospital because they got the sniffles.
” I hate it when my private aircraft has mechanical problems.”
Had a simliar problem...today. Although it isn’t mine.
I got nothing against Rudy. I’m just sick of weenies and crybabies.
I bet they do if they’ve had cancer, are traveling far from home and their doctor says, “You go to a hospital now!”
And thank you for verifying, once again, that Texans have class.
I wish Rudy a swift and full recovery and then a thorough butt whippin’.
Prayers that he gets some well needed rest in the hospital, and recovers quickly.
Well, it is obvious that it has been a while since you have had a CPR class, because a heart attack can mimic flu like symptoms. It is better to have it checked out to do what we call in the business R/O MI.
My wife had breast cancer and she just went to her doctor today for the flu-like symptoms she's been suffering from for the last few days. He prescribed her some anti-biotics and sent her home where I made her some chicken noodle soup and filled up a vaporizer thing with water and eucalyptus oil. She didn't go to no hospital. She just cowgirled up. As a matter of fact, she's been sewing curtains for her fellow teacher all night.
I'm not naive enough to believe that all Texans have class. I can only speak for myself and I got more class than you can shake a stick at.
Okay, so now he’s got diarrhea, influenza, pneumonia and he’s suffered a heart attack. This is getting good.
I hope he doesn’t have what I had...I don’t wish the flu on anyone. Hope he recovers & is better in a few days.
I will assume you're joking and not an idiot.
The candidate and his staff would not rush to the hospital for Koapectate. Hopefully, it's nothing serious and thankfully your not a doctor in the ER.
You have more than class, Texas Eagle! Here’s hoping your beloved wife gets better and has many, many more years.
Prayers up for his health. Hope he is well soon.
“Could pacifists exist if there weren’t people brave enough to go to war for their right to exist?”
Now I don’t know how long you’ve been patiently waiting for an answer to your question, but I thought I would go ahead and help you out.
I am not saying that he has had a heart attack. I am just saying that a real heart attack can exhibit flu like symptoms.
There has been numerous people that had flu like symptoms that turned out to be a heart attack. They ignored it or the ER doc did, which unfortunately resulted in the death of the patient.
I should hope not. That's why God created Walgreens. Sheesh.
