Chicago's First Lady Maggie Daley is back home Monday after being discharged from Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Daley was being treated for flu-like symptoms she received after surgery on her leg. She was hospitalized for a week.

Northwestern oncologist Dr. Steven Rosen says Daley was treated for "an infection, which has been resolved."

According to a news release, Daley will continue therapy on an outpatient basis at Northwestern.

She was diagnosed with mestatic cancer in 2002, and last month had a metal rod replaced to strengthen a bone in her leg that had weakened due to the cancer.

"I know there are legions of others who are going through the same thing," Daley said in the news release. "I am very grateful for all the prayers and good wishes I’ve received."
