The Houston Methodist Hospital confirmed through a statement on Monday afternoon that the former President George W. Bush will remain in the hospital for a few more days for observation, after being treated for pneumonia.
According also to the hospital’s statement, Bush is in “good spirits” and “resting comfortably.” Meanwhile, a statement from Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath says the former president will remain under observation by doctors, though he hopes to be discharged “by the end of the week.”
Bush, 92, has been hospitalized since April 14. Bush got a visit from his son, President George W. Bush, last week.
In February, Bush and wife Barbara, who was also hospitalized in January, took part in the pregame coin toss at the Super Bowl at NRG Stadium then was hit by the flu after the Super Bowl.
