Barbara Bush Remains Hospitalized In Houston

Posted: Updated:
UPDATE:
 
HOUSTON (AP) - Former first lady Barbara Bush remains in a Houston hospital for treatment of a respiratory-related issue.
   
Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said Thursday she is "doing great and responding well" to treatment at Methodist Hospital in Houston.
   
McGrath says physicians may be exercising extra caution by keeping her at the hospital.
   
The 88-year-old wife of former President George H.W. Bush was admitted to the hospital Monday.
   
The Bush family matriarch had heart surgery in 2009. She also was hospitalized in 2008, when she underwent surgery for a perforated ulcer, and in 2010, when she was admitted after having a mild relapse of a thyroid condition.
   
She and her husband, the 41st president, live in Houston.

HOUSTON (AP) - Former first lady Barbara Bush remains hospitalized in Texas with a respiratory-related issue.
    
Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Monday, but it wasn't announced until Tuesday night.
    
Jim McGrath, a spokesman for her husband, President George H.W. Bush, said her condition didn't change overnight and there was "nothing new to report" on Wednesday.
    
The former president's office previously released a statement saying Mrs. Bush "is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care."
    
The 88-year-old former first lady had heart surgery in 2009, and was also hospitalized in 2008 and 2010.
    
She and her husband live in Houston and still make public appearances. Last week, they honored a Houston businessman and philanthropist with a Points of Light Award.
