The Republican candidate will be taking Monday off to spend time with his 3-year-old daughter Bella, who was hospitalized on Friday. After that, he'll be back on the campaign trail, but will only be doing a single event each day. As the Caucus notes, notifying the media of events more than one or two days in advance is an unusual move — one likely made to combat rumors that Santorum plans to drop out of the race.
