(CNN) - Sen. Robert Byrd was hospitalized Monday night, a spokesman said.
The 90-year-old Democrat from West Virginia appeared lethargic when he arrived at his Senate office Monday afternoon in preparation for a vote on global warming, the spokesman said.
After the vote, he returned home, where his caregiver noticed the same symptoms, took his temperature and discovered he had a fever, the spokesman said.
SIR I HOPE YOU GET WELL SOON
LET US ALL PRAY FOR HIM AND GOD BLESS THE WORLD
I have to respect a guy who has turned it around the way Sen. Byrd did from his early career to now, but this is just another example that there's a changing of the guard going on. For better or for worse - hopefully, for better - the older generation is peeling back, making way for the new one.
Hope that he is okay.
Hang in there Sen. Byrd I'm thinking of you and sending lots of prayers your way. And thank you for giving of your self all these years!
Although I do not agree with his endorsement of Sen. Obama, I hope and pray that Byrd and his family are doing well!
IN 2002 Senator Robert Byrd was the most outspoken critic regarding the US going into a preemptive war with Iraq, and voted against the resolution. Even at age 90 the man still has important work to do, and I wish him a full and speedy recovery.
Nobody wants to go to the hospital, and for Mr. Byrd and his family I wish only a speedy recovery....
But come on, this guy is 20yrs older that McCain!!!!! And Barack Obama's campaign is questioning the age of McCain. Get real....Obama will take his support though....real change I guess Obama in the politics in Washington.
Get well we need all democratic leaders we can get. We need to defeate republicans (false Christians) we can not afford to have any republican serving our country.
Nobody gets fitter when getting older. Only Mc Cain believes different.
We pray for you to get well quickly Sen. Byrd. We need you in Senat. We love you, Sir.
Get well soon! Our prayers are with you!
Hats off to him for being a serving senator @ 90 but he should retire. For his own sake, if not for the country and the people who love him.
Why are people so surprised by what the Vice President of the United States says? He is just showing his true colors; and that is pure ignorance, stupidity and lack of respect for others. Surely, he can't talk about anyone when he was the one who got four deferments to keep from serving in the war. This is just a sign of someone who is a coward and would prefer to hide behind the skirts and pants of those who are putting their lives on the line for he and Bush's selfish deeds. Ignorant is as ignorant does!
And yet democrats elect him to be the caretaker of America. Now that, is out of touch.
....but a 72 year old President is too old!?!?!
Did Cheney anger him that much?
Sen. Byrd needs to retire, now!
may you be well.
Get well Senator Byrd. I hope it's nothing serious and that you will have many more years left to contribute to this country and also so that you can hug the first black president. You are one of Senator Obama's supporters that should be around when he takes the office, because your heart is good and your soul belongs to God and you have resolved the issues of your youth.
God has forgiven you and blesses you.
Our paryers are with you Senator Byrd!
Sen Byrd has served our country well but is ailing and aged. He needs to retire. His intentions are good but he needs to step aside.
Get well soon
How old and senile do you have to be to be told your not fit to be operating as a legislator?
this probably happened because of Cheney's "joke". the senator was irate about it.
west virginia, aren't you proud?
some of you voted for hillary because of race.
you put bush in the whitehouse so he could get our troops killed, and raise the price of oil and food. now Cheney lets you see what they really think about you all. Are you having fun yet?
too bad!we need him so much right now!!i hope his back in a few days!!!!!!!!!!!
