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

The 90-year-old was admitted to the hospital last night for observation after suffering a fever. This is Byrd's third stint in the hospital this year.
