Supt. McCarthy continues recovery from heart attack

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy offered some insight Sunday to his recent health scare and his recovery.

"Today is the best I've felt since I had the heart attack," McCarthy said. "What's been killing me is the medication has been banging me up with all sorts of physical ailments."

McCarthy, who attended Sunday's Chicago Pride Parade, says he's been "losing my mind sitting around."

He said he's been keeping in touch with the department by phone and blackberry and has even gone in to the office to work a few half days.
