SHARE KILLEBREW HOSPITALIZED WITH COLLAPSED LUNG

A collapsed lung is expected to keep baseball Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew hospitalized for at least 10 days, his brother says.

Killebrew, 53, underwent surgery Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, said his brother, Bob, Caldwell. Killebrew was scheduled to remain in intensive care for another two to three days at Scottsdale Memorial Hospital, Bob Killebrew said."The problem was a gastric ulcer that ruptured in his stomach," Bob Killebrew said. "The fluid backed up into his chest cavity and collapsed his lung. He's still unable to talk."
