Doctors are “currently in the process of assessing” former President Gerald Ford to see if the 92-year-old can leave Eisenhower Medical Center, his chief of staff said this morning.

Ford has been in the Rancho Mirage hospital since Saturday, getting IV antibiotics and respiratory therapy to help him recover from pneumonia complications.

“He is doing well and continuing to respond to treatments,” Chief of Staff Penny Circle said this morning.

By late afternoon, Circle said he was getting “continuing respiratory therapy using treatment measures that are not easily available at home.”
