SHARE BURNS LEAVES THE HOSPITAL 9 DAYS AFTER HIS OPERATION

Entertainer George Burns was discharged Thursday from a Los Angeles hospital just nine days after having surgery to drain excess fluid from the surface of his brain.

The 98-year-old legend is alert and glad to be home, said Irving Fein, Burns's manager."He's going to take plenty of time to recuperate to get himself into shape for his 99th birthday party," Fein said, referring to Burns' scheduled engagement Jan. 20 at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Earlier this year, tickets for Burns's 100th birthday celebration at Casear's Palace in January 1996 sold out just a few hours after going on sale.
