Pope's Health Good, Recovered Better than Expected

VATICAN CITY - The emergency room doctor who treated Pope John Paul II's breathing crisis says the pontiff made a swifter-than-expected recovery and is generally in good health.

"The recovery time was more rapid than we initially predicted," and the pope was discharged a day ahead of initial estimates for his release, Dr. Rodolfo Proietti told the daily newspaper of the Italian Bishops Conference, Avvenire.
