Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized again last Friday, according to a report published today in the Washington Examiner.
The former POTUS was taken to Houston Methodist Hospital “for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest” and was told he was suffering from pneumonia, family spokesman Jim McGrath said.
McGrath told reporters the pneumonia has been successfully treated, and that Bush is “in very good spirits and is being held for further observation while he regains his strength.”
Bush, 92, was infirmed for almost 2 weeks with pneumonia in January, forcing him to miss President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
But a recovered Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush appeared at the Super Bowl to perform the ceremonial coin flip.
Bush won election in 1992 and served 1 term in the highest office.
