Former Mayor Ed Koch expects to leave the hospital on Saturday after staying more than a week.
Doctors will be watching over him this weekend at New York Presbyterian-Columbia in Upper Manhattan.
Koch was admitted last Saturday night with fluid in his lungs and swollen ankles.
He's been told to watch his salt intake.
Koch is 88-years-old.
He has had several hospital stays recently, one in September for anemia and another in December for a respiratory infection.
