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.
FEEL BETTER SEN.BYRD.
Hang in there Sen. Bryd, you've still got a lot of fight left. God Bless
WE WISH YOU A SPEEDY RECOVERY SEN.BYRD.
WE ARE PROUD THAT YOU NEVER STOPPED LEARNING
AND WORKING FOR THE BENEFIT OF THIS NATION.
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SERVICE & YOUR PERSON.
THANK YOU ALWAYS.
YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO WORK MAN.
WE NEED YOU & WILL ONLY LET YOU REST SO MUCH.
MUCH LOVE TO YOU.
I do hope he gets well soon.
Don't let Cheney get to you that much, sir...
Hope you get well and then do as Zell Miller did and call him out to a duel for calling the people of your state names.
Even though I was surprised when this former racist,endorsed Obama, I wish him well.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Everyone prays for you to get well. I love people of my father's generation like Sen. Byrd. These people for the most part have such integrity, honor and respect for people. God Bless you. The words of support that Senator Byrd said for Sen. Kennedy were so touching and honest and I'm sure that everyone is now wishing the same wishes for him.
Obama needs you more than anybody, get well soon!
Yeah..Yeah....I hope he gets better to.
Get Better and retire!!!!
Geeez.....when are you whimpy people going to stand up and demand that your elected officials (at least) have to stay awake during the Senate hours.
For all of us we can say everything anythime but when it comes to omebody 's issue please let us be kind because it can happen to anybody
After reaching 75 years old, an incumbent is holding young people back! You have done a great job! Give other people a chance to serve the country with new ideas and energy!!!
I bet none of the well wishs come from people of West Virginia. They know the real Byrd.
I hope he gets better too but the man IS 90 years old. It's amazing that he can even still walk let alone be an active senator.
Does it not frighten anyone else that people in their 80s and 90s are running this country?? Very capable airline pilots are required to retire at 65 yet we allow potentially impaired people to make decisions that affect everything from who we can or cannot marry to which country we're going to piss off next. Term limits anyone??
My best wishes, Senator Byrd!
I wish him well. I'm not 90, but I'm getting "lethargic," too. Mostly about the DNC, its rules committee, and the entire Democratic party - of which I USED to be a proud member!
i hope you begin to feel better senator. you're a true testiment of change
You're in my thoughts Mr. Byrd. Please get well soon!
And by the way, it is tacky to turn this into an Obama/McCain whatever thread.
This is about Senator Byrd. You can send prayers and well wishes to this dear man without turning it into a partisan attack.
Our prayer are with you, hope for a speedy recovery.
I simply thank God that there aren't too many people like you!
Your comment is utterly disgusting, and disrespectful, Sen. Byrd is a man who has worked most of his adult life, helping the American People, and this is the respect that you give him!
We are all praying for you, may God bless and make you well again.
Proud Army and Navy Mom,
I tend to believe that Sen. Byrd has been worrying about Sen. Ted Kennedy, and yes, when you add Cheney's disgusting remark, about in-breeding and West Virginia, it is quite possible that this has taken a toll on his health.
It has been over a decade since you have been the least bit relevant. Get better.. then get out .
