REED IN GOOD SPIRITS

SHARE REED IN GOOD SPIRITS

Former hostage Frank Reed is expected to remain hospitalized for another week but he is in good spirits, sleeping well and starting to regain some of about 50 pounds he lost, according to a medical report.

The Air Force said Tuesday a battery of medical tests has tired the 57-year-old educator so his examination schedule is being spread out over more days. He went into the hospital at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Friday, four days after his Middle East kidnappers released him April 30.His doctors had said he likely would be able to return to his native Massachusetts by the end of this week, but now that has been revised to next week.
