How's he doin'? Much better, thank you!

Former Mayor Ed Koch, 88, underwent evaluations and was expected to be released from the hospital by this weekend, according to his spokesman, George Arzt.
"He told me, 'I really look terrific,' " due to a substantial weight loss resulting from his hospital treatment, Arzt said.

Koch, who has been hospitalized three times in the last five months, was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Saturday night for swelling of his ankles and fluid in his lungs.
