Elizabeth Taylor is expected to remain in hospital for several more days after undergoing treatment for congestive heart failure.
ELIZABETH TAYLOR, the 78-year-old British-American actress who was admitted to hospital late last week, will remain at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles for several more days, reports the Press Association.The actress has been treated for symptoms caused by the condition that she was first diagnosed with in 2004. Her representative said, "At this stage, with her history, they're going to want to keep her in for a while just to make sure they've fixed what they needed to fix". Taylor, who has appeared in more than 50 films and won Oscars for her roles in 'Butterfield 8' and 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf', is understood to be in a stable condition and is resting comfortably surrounded by her family and friends. Taylor, who has been married eight times, twice to the actor Richard Burton, has endured lifelong battles with substance abuse, weight issues, as well as undergoing more than 20 major operations.
She had near-fatal bouts of pneumonia in 1961 and 1990, had both hip-joints replaced in 1994 and 1995 and had a benign tumour removed in 1997. In recent years, she has been confined to a wheelchair.
