DescriptionU.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye remains hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and there is still no indication as to when he will be released, his deputy chief of staff said tonight.

“He is stable and communicating with his doctors and family,” Peter Boylan said. “Unfortunately, he is fighting respiratory complications as work is being done to stabilize his supplemental oxygen requirements. At this time, there is no time table for his release."

Inouye, 88, was hospitalized at George Washington University Hospital on Dec. 6 after fainting in one of his Senate offices. He was moved to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Dec. 9.
