Paul Rodriguez -- Up and Texting

Comedian Paul Rodriguez is still in a hospital in Washington D.C. but there is at least one good sign that he's getting better -- he's texting.

Mario Santoya -- who works with Paul at the California Latino Water Coalition -- says he left Paul's side last night, but received a text from him this morning. Santoya says Rodriguez is conscious and "feeling better."

Rodriguez was hospitalized Thursday night after complaining of stomach pains.
