Byrd Not Expected At Work This Week

By  | 

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.
