Ex-President Gerald Ford admitted to Mayo Clinic
Tuesday, August 15, 2006
"No further releases or updates are anticipated prior to early next week," the statement also said. When contacted, Ford's spokesman did not say what treatment he was getting at the clinic, and referred all other questions to the clinic.
John Murphy, the Mayo Clinic's spokesman, said only "I can verify that the statement is correct and I have no other additional information."
Ford's activity has diminished since he suffered two small strokes five years ago. The 38th president spent 12 days in hospital this past January suffering from pneumonia.
