HOUSTON TEXAS – Doctors say former President George H.W. Bush is seeing progress in his recovery from pneumonia.
The elder bush was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital on Wednesday with shortness of breath. He underwent a procedure to clear his airways and has been in the ICU ever since.
Bush spokesman Jim McGrath released a statement on twitter saying doctors hope to move the former president from the ICU soon.
His wife Barbara was also admitted to that same hospital on Wednesday with similar symptoms, and is also recovering comfortably. She was given the option to be discharged, but decided to stay at the hospital as a precaution.
