AUSTIN (AP) - Former first lady Lady Bird Johnson remained hospitalized Saturday but is doing well while undergoing medical
tests.

"Mrs. Johnson had a good night," family spokeswoman Elizabeth Christian said. "She's resting comfortably. No change. Everything is good."

Johnson, 94, was hospitalized Thursday night at Seton Medical Center in Austin because of a slight fever.

Christian says doctors were treating her for the fever and conducting medical tests.

She says that it's hoped that Johnson will return home soon.

Daughters Luci Baines Johnson of Austin and Lynda Johnson Robb of Virginia were with her at the hospital. Other family members and friends have been at her side and reported her being alert.

Her husband, former President Lyndon B- Johnson, died in 1973.
