Gov. Butch Otter is back at work after battling with a fever and dehydration since the weekend.  Otter was admitted to a Boise hospital Monday and released on Wednesday.  During that span, he was absent from several events, including a Land Board meeting and campaign fundraiser with Rudy Giuliani.

Otter said he started feeling ill after helping Lt. Gov. Brad Little brand cattle on a ranch in Gem County.  At first, he thought he had heat stroke.

Otter said his condition worsened on Sunday, which led him to a Monday doctor’s visit, followed by the trip to the hospital.

The governor suffered from fever, sweats, fatigue, and dehydration.  He was treated with antibiotics, but his doctor told him his illness could have been caused by a variety of bacteria.

According to the governor’s press secretary, Jon Hanian, the governor will continue taking antibiotics into next week, and slowly resume his normal work schedule.
