Dobson was "resting comfortably while undergoing a series of tests and procedures to better determine his condition," Paul Hetrick, a spokesman for the Christian ministry, said Wednesday.He said Dobson became ill after returning from a conference in North Carolina and was admitted to a Colorado Springs hospital late Tuesday. Hetrick said Dobson did not lose consciousness or show signs of paralysis.

Dobson was in Salt Lake City a week ago to address the Southern Baptist Convention.
