Washington (Ap) -- The Office of Robert C. Byrd says the West Virginia senator is still recovering from a staph infection.
The 91-year-old Byrd was hospitalized in mid-May with a high temperature.
His office says Byrd is not expected back at work this week.
The latest update says he is in daily contact with his staff and appreciates the get-well wishes he has received.
That includes one from Sen. Edward Kennedy, who was diagnosed a year ago with brain cancer.
