Cleopatra's spokeswoman confirmed today that Oscar-winner Elizabeth Taylor will probably be spending another few days in a Los Angeles hospital for congestive heart failure treatment, reports CBS Local.

78-year-old Taylor -- who was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in 2004, survived life-threatening pneumonia in 1961 and 1990, a serious respiratory infection in 1992, two hip joints replacements in 1994 and 1995, spinal fractures, scoliosis, ulcers, amoebic dysentery, bursitis, and the removal of a benign brain tumor in 1997 -- was reportedly "resting comfortably" at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with family and friends visiting over the weekend.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center spokeswoman Sally Morrison said it was not clear exactly how long Taylor would remain in the hospital but remarked, "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,” reports CBS Local.
