Eisenhower. 78, was reported i "very weak" today but taking, small amounts of liquids at! Walter Reed Army Ilospiul. A hospital bulletin issued; shortly alter 10 a.m. EST said: "General Eisenhower rested well last night." But it added: "There has been no further: progression of the pneumonia.; Ilij, cardiovascular (heart) sta-| luf remains stable." After] stating that he "still remains very weak." the hospital bulletin said: "The nasogastric tube was removed last nifiht and he is; being given small amounts of liquids by mouth today." The i8 -ycar-oId general, one of the nation's three surviving former presidents, had been making a remarkable recovery from major surgery until "hypostatic pneumonia" settled in his right lung. Doctors said it weakened him. and put "con- sidefable" strain on his heart. The bulletin late Friday afternoon said doctors wore, treating the pneumonia with antibiotics and by changing Eisenhower's position frequently. He was fed intravenously and given oxygen through a nose tube. The>- said he was, resting comfortably. Doctors constantly monitored his heart—which has enduredi seven atUcks through thel >cars. including four in the last' 10 months. They reported his cardiac condition during his sdback had "remained stable." Mamie Eisenhower, as shc^ has since the latest siege of illnesses set in with an intestinal obstruction one week ago. was staging in a suite ne.\t to her husband. Their only son. Ambassador- designate John S. Eisenhower, and his wife were expected during the weekend. .And their only grandchild. David Eisenhower, and his wife. Julie Ni.xon Eisenhower, visited—as they had planned previously—on Friday. President Nixon, winding up a trip to Europe, was kept informed of his old chieFs condition. Medical authorities said the pain of abdaminal surgery, which reaches a peak three or fr.ur days after the operation, makes it difficult for a patient to breathe deeply or to cough enough to clear his lungs of phlegm, which collects deep in the lung. Eisenhower underwent major surgerj- Sunday night to relieve an intestinal obstruction, and he was astonishing his doctors by his recovery. But Thursday ni;ht he was restless and had difficulty breathing. And at their Friday morning briefing. Brig. Gen. Frederick J. Hughes Jr. said he had pneumonia.
