Ailing funny lady Lucille Ball is feeling better, but will have to stay in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center at least until Monday, a hospital spokeswoman said Saturday.

Spokeswoman Paula Correia said that doctors decided late Friday they wanted the lontime comedienne to stay on for tests and observation.

"Everything seems to be OK, but they just want to be sure," Correia said. Ball, 76, the zany redhead of television's "I Love Lucy," became ill at home Wednesday and checked herself in.
