Stu Hart to remain in hospital

The Hart family can expect to spend up to a week at the bedside of patriarch Stu Hart, who remains in hospital undergoing tests.

Hart, 88, was taken to Rockyview Hospital Friday with an infected elbow and swollen stomach.

His son Bruce said he underwent several tests yesterday and is doing well, but will likely remain in hospital for the next several days.

"He fell last week and gashed his elbow and his diabetes seems to be impeding his body's ability to deal with a staph infection," said Bruce Hart.

In addition, his dad has a swollen stomach, believed to be from intestinal problems.

"We've certainly got a lot of support from a lot of people," said Bruce. "The outpouring is therapeutic."
