An aide to hospitalized New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg says the senator is ``recovering comfortably'' in the hospital and is anxious to get back to work.

The 86-year-old Democrat underwent an endoscopy procedure this week to treat a bleeding ulcer. He was taken to the hospital Monday night after becoming lightheaded and falling at his Cliffside Park home.

Spokesman Caley Gray said Lautenberg spoke with his staff several times Wednesday.

It's not yet known when the senator will be released from the hospital.
