Elizabeth Taylor health 'improving'

Dame Elizabeth Taylor's condition is said to be 'improving'

Dame Elizabeth Taylor's condition was said to be "improving" in a Los Angeles hospital and the acting legend has been receiving visits from family and friends.

Her spokeswoman Sally Morrison said the 78-year-old two-time Oscar winner was comfortable at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre and "there has been steady improvement in her condition" since she was admitted last week.

Dame Elizabeth is being treated for symptoms of congestive heart failure, a condition she disclosed in November 2004.

"Her medical team is gratified by her progress to date, and it is hoped and expected that this will continue over the next few days. For now, she will remain under their care in the hospital for continued monitoring," Morrison said.

"Friends and fans around the world should be reassured that Elizabeth Taylor is in good hands and receiving the best possible care from her skilled and dedicated doctors and nurses."

Morrison described Dame Elizabeth's condition as stable but offered no other details.

Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
