Sister of Pope Francis in stable condition after entering hospital for rise in glucose level

The pope's sister in Argentina has been hospitalized, but her family says it's nothing serious.

Maria Elena Bergoglio is the only surviving sibling of Pope Francis. Her nephew Pablo Narvaja said Tuesday that she was hospitalized with high blood pressure and glucose levels Monday night, but now she's stable and feeling much better.

Narvaja says his 66-year-old aunt has some chronic health problems, "but there is no cardiorespiratory difficulty; the heart is fine, the lungs as well, and the first signs (of trouble) are receding."

He also says that she's lucid and showing good humor, and they hope she can return home in a few days.
