Former American President George HW Bush remained under observation overnight Wednesday in a Houston hospital, where he was admitted following complaints of breathlessness and unrest, family spokesman Jim McGrath said.
The 90-year-old veteran was on Tuesday evening shifted to Houston Methodist Hospital, where he was admitted last year, after he experienced shortness in breath.
Releasing an emailed statement late on Wednesday, McGrath said that the former president his recuperating well to the treatment and spent a “good day” in hospital. His prognosis “remains positive,” McGrath said.
Senior Bush had to spend his Christmas 2012 at the same hospital where he was receiving treatment for a bronchitis-related cough and other health problems. He was discharged from the hospital in January last year, after spending nearly two months there.
Meanwhile, the doctors have still not made it clear that whether Bush would be able to spend this Christmas with his family and near ones at home.
Senior Bush is the oldest living former president. He is suffering from a form of Parkinson’s disease due to which he uses motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility.
Meanwhile, President Barack Obama has been notified about Bush’s hospital admission and his health condition.
White House spokesman Eric Schultz, said, “President Obama and the first lady send their good wishes to the former president and the entire Bush family during this holiday season.”
Obama is currently vacationing in Hawaii with his family.
