CHICAGO (AP) Cardinal Francis George says he feels a 'little bit lightheaded' and a little unsteady on his feet but otherwise OK after his first treatment in a new round of chemotherapy.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that 77-year-old leader of the Chicago archdiocese underwent his latest cancer treatment Wednesday that focused on one of his kidneys.

George told the newspaper Saturday that he'll have three rounds of chemotherapy, after which he'll avoid crowds to because his immune system is expected to be compromised.

George had surgery in 2006 to remove his cancerous bladder, prostate and part of his right ureter and was deemed cancer-free after 19 days in the hospital. But his cancer returned in 2012, and he underwent chemotherapy.
