Some good news for WSYX (Columbus) Weatherman Jym Ganahl….

The popular weather anchor who has battled some health issues has been released from the hospital where he has been for the past week.

Ganahl went to the hospital after suffering an irregular heartbeat. He was was admitted to OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital last week for atrial fibrillation.

Atrial fibrillation, also called AFib, is an irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure, or other heart-related complications, according to the American Heart Association.

"My first relapse of heart failure in 6 years triggered by sudden appearance of AFIB for first time ever. Extracted 3700 cc of fluid from lungs. Finally, on the diet I should have been doing and many of you encouraged me to do. Down 23 lbs. Could not even walk with a walker after release from hospital so spent couple of days with my daughter. Home now and walking without walker at all," Ganahl wrote on his official Facebook page.

He expects to be back at work on Monday.
