Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized over the weekend.
Jim McGrath, spokesperson for the 41st president and former first lady Barbara Bush, tweeted on Wednesday morning that Bush was taken to Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, on Saturday for "shortness of breath."
"[He] has responded very well to treatments. Hope to have him out soon," the tweet further stated.
Bush's chief of staff, Jean Becker, gave a similar quote theHouston Chronicle, saying, "He's there [in the hospital. He's fine and he's doing really well." A later statement from Bush's camp, obtained by NBC News, said the 92-year-old former politician was "being monitored as a precaution and is resting comfortably."
The hospitalization stemmed from pneumonia, Bush's office said in a statement to CBS News on Wednesday. It was also revealed that former first lady Barabara Bush was also admitted to the hospital.
“Doctors performed a procedure to protect and clear his airway that required sedation. President Bush is stable and resting comfortably in the ICU, where he will remain for observation,” the statement said. “Additionally, Mrs. Bush was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital this morning as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing.”
In 2015, Bush spent a week at a hospital in Maine after falling and breaking a bone in his neck. He also suffers from Parkinson’s disease and uses a wheelchair to get around. Bush is currently the oldest living former U.S. president, only a few months older than former President Jimmy Carter.
