Minnelli: Going Home

10/21/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Liza Minnelli, 54, will be released from a Florida hospital today following a bout with viral encephalitis, according to her publicist, Michael Hartman. Minnelli was hospitalized about three weeks ago after contracting the rare and potentially fatal disease, which causes inflammation of the brain. Hartman said on Sunday that the entertainer is "still a little weak but feeling well enough to go home." He added that she will spend the next few months at home recovering, in the care of attendants.
