(CNN) - Sen. Robert Byrd, D-West Virginia, will remain in the hospital for several days, according to a statement from his Senate office.
“At the recommendation of his physicians, Senator Robert C. Byrd will remain in the hospital for several more days for monitoring and antibiotic treatment for a mild infection," said the statement.
“Byrd is alert, talking with staff and in good spirits and looks forward to getting back to work as soon as possible.”
Byrd was hospitalized Monday night after the 90-year-old Democrat from West Virginia appeared lethargic when he arrived at his Senate office in preparation for a vote on global warming, the spokesman said.
I love Senator Byrd!! He is one of the few americans in power today that I hold to the utmost respect. I hope he gets better America needs him.
May God be with you and bless you. I also agree with Tjaye about about him hopefully being able to live to see the fruits of his labor and personal growth.
