Concerns around the world for Former President George H.W. Bush’s condition, which we have learned is improving, although he will remain in a Houston hospital through the weekend, the family spokesman said Saturday.
Spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement released Saturday that the 90-year-old’s condition has improved and possible dates for discharge were being discussed.
“President Bush’s condition has improved to the point that doctors have begun discussing dates for his discharge,” the statement read. “He will remain at the Houston Methodist Hospital through the weekend for further observation.
Bush, the oldest living former U.S. president, was taken by ambulance to the hospital Tuesday for what was reported as a precaution after experiencing shortness of breath.
Two years ago he spent nearly two months, including Christmas, at the same hospital for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough and other issues.
He suffers from a form of Parkinson’s disease that has forced him to rely on a motorized scooter or wheelchair, although in June he celebrated his 90th birthday with a skydive.
