Former US President Gerald Ford hospitalized with pneumonia
Tuesday, January 17, 2006
Ford's chief of staff, Penny Circle, said in a press release, "He is doing well and resting comfortably." She added that there would be no further announcements until 11 AM on Tuesday.
Ford visited the hospital last month for a routine test, which he goes for every December. Circle said he had "a horrible cold." Ford last visited the hospital in January 2005 for a follow-up on his annual December checkup.
Ford, 92, was the nation's 38th president. After the death of Ronald Regan in 2004, he became the oldest American president alive.
