Former President &to=http://english.pravda.ru/columnists/2002/02/18/26452.html' target=_blank>Gerald Ford, suffering from "a horrible cold," was in the hospital Tuesday for what his chief of staff called routine medical tests.
Ford, 92, was admitted to Eisenhower Medical Center late Monday and was expected to be released Wednesday, spokeswoman Penny Circle said from Ford's Rancho Mirage office about 110 miles east of Los Angeles.
"He's in for medical tests, routine tests," Circle told The Associated Press by telephone. "He's had a horrible cold and he still hasn't gotten over it."
Circle said those tests are scheduled each December. She did not release other details.
