Medical Update On Former President And First Lady
HOUSTON (AP) — The Latest on the medical treatment of former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush at a Houston hospital.
Doctors say former President George H.W. Bush will soon be moved from the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital where he has been treated for pneumonia.
Dr. Amy Mynderse says the 92-year-old Bush will be moved from the ICU at the Houston Methodist Hospital on Monday.
Bush was struggling to breathe when he was admitted to the hospital Jan. 14. Doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia and put him on a ventilator in the ICU to assist his breathing. The breathing tube was removed Friday.
Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said Sunday that the former president's vital signs were normal and that doctors hoped he could be moved out of intensive care in the next day or so.
Doctors say former first lady Barbara Bush has been discharged from the Houston hospital where she underwent treatment for bronchitis.
