Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush to Remain in Hospital
(Reuters) – Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush will remain in a Houston hospital at least through Thursday night as he recovers from his second bout of pneumonia this year, a family spokesman said.
“No change in President @GeorgeHWBush’s condition to report today,” spokesman Jim McGrath said on his Twitter feed on Thursday.
Bush, 92, was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital on Friday for a cough that was later diagnosed as a mild case of pneumonia, McGrath has said. He said the former president would stay at least through Thursday night.
In his earlier bout with pneumonia, Bush spent more than two weeks at Houston Methodist in January, much of it in the intensive care unit.
