DETROIT (AP) - Aretha Franklin was released from the hospital Wednesday after being treated for an allergic reaction to antibiotics.
Franklin was admitted to Sinai-Grace Hospital Saturday after she coughed up some blood while on her tour bus, which was returning to the Detroit area from Chicago, her doctor, Claud Young, told WDIV-TV.
Young said it appears Franklin had an allergic reaction to penicillin she took while on the road. He said the singer was put on medication that brought her platelet level back to normal. Young has said Franklin's illness appears to be an isolated event.
