George H.W. Bush remains in hospital with pneumonia

Former President George H.W. Bush will be in a Houston hospital for at least one more day with pneumonia.

The 92 year old has been at Methodist Hospital for nearly a week.

His office issued the following statement:

"President George H. W. Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Friday for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest. It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved.  President Bush is in very good spirits and is being held for further observation while he regains his strength."

Back in January, Mr. Bush spent 16 days in the same hospital for pneumonia.
