Sen. Robert C. Byrd, 90, will remain hospitalized for several more days for treatment of a mild infection, his office said.

Byrd "is alert, talking with staff and in good spirits and looks forward to getting back to work as soon as possible," his spokesman said.

Byrd (D-W.Va.), the longest-serving U.S. senator, was hospitalized Monday after feeling lethargic and developing a fever. He has been in the Senate for nearly 50 years.
