WASHINGTON -- Rick Santorum plans no campaign events on Monday and will spend time with his wife and ailing daughter Bella.

Campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley said this weekend that the former Pennsylvania senator "will not hold any campaign related events on Monday so that he and Karen can remain in the hospital with their daughter Bella." Gidley said the Santorums are grateful for the many prayers and messages of support from people.

Santorum's campaign said Friday that 3-year-old Bella had been returned to the hospital. She has the rare genetic condition Trisomy 18 and was hospitalized earlier this year with pneumonia. Bella's condition typically proves to be fatal.
