 LOS ANGELES (AP) -John Wooden will remain hospitalized at least one more day because of an elevated heart rate, the former UCLA basketball coach's daughter said Thursday.
``Dad is feeling much better. He's ready to go home,'' Nan Muehlhausen said in a statement. ``He had solid food last night and everything was fine. However, the doctors wanted to keep him another day while they determine why his heart rate was slightly elevated. They adjusted his medication today and he's been normal all afternoon.''
The 96-year-old Hall of Famer claims his heart rate is up because he's been in the hospital too long, his daughter said, ``but the doctors just want to be sure everything is fine before they let him go home.''
Wooden was hospitalized Sunday when he started experiencing symptoms similar to those he experienced a year ago when he was hospitalized for diverticulitis, an inflammation of pockets in the colon.
Doctors said they believed Wooden had a reaction to a combination of medications, including one for arthritis.
Wooden coached the Bruins to 10 NCAA championships in a 12-year span before retiring in 1975 with a 620-147 record in 27 years at UCLA. He had to cancel a speaking engagement Wednesday at Kansas State University because he was hospitalized.
