Gov. Otter returns to work after hospitalization
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter returned to work in the Capitol after a two-night hospitalization this week for a fever and dehydration.
Otter said Thursday his doctor remains uncertain what caused his ailment. He said three strains of bacteria found during tests may have been the culprit.
The 67-year-old was feeling ill Saturday while helping Lt. Gov. Brad Little brand and castrate calves in Gem County, but said it wasn't until a Republican Lincoln Day banquet in Ontario, Ore., that evening that he really felt sick. His temperature was 101.8 degrees Sunday; he said the fever would break, then return, so by Monday he and his wife, Lori Otter, sought medical help at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. He was released Wednesday.
Otter, who said his doctor declined to be interviewed, is taking antibiotics.
