RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe continues working from his hospital bed, his third day out of the office as he is treated for injuries suffered on an African safari over the Christmas holiday.    

McAuliffe was thrown from a horse during a family vacation in Tanzania and broke seven ribs. He entered Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center in Richmond on Monday after suffering shortness of breath.

Spokesman Brian Coy said the governor would remain in the hospital Wednesday night. Doctors have drained 1½ liters of fluid from his lungs.    

Coy stressed McAuliffe is "actively running the commonwealth," keeping a full schedule of meetings with staff and Cabinet members.    

He said McAuliffe's doctors are pleased with his progress. It's unclear when he'll be released.
