Ex-president George HW Bush and wife in Hospital

Former US President George HW Bush and his wife Barbara Bush have been admitted to a hospital in Houston, Texas, according to his spokesman Jim McGrath. The 41st president was admitted on Saturday due to "an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia".

 

The 92-year-old has now been moved to the intensive care unit after doctors performed a "procedure to protect and clear his airway"; Mrs Bush, 91, was admitted on Wednesday suffering from fatigue and a cough.

 

In a letter addressed 10 January, Mr Bush wrote to President-elect Donald Trump to say that "my doctor says if I sit outside in January, it will likely put me six feet under. Same for Barbara. So I guess we're stuck in Texas," he wrote, adding that they will be "with you and the country in spirit". Mr Bush, the oldest living US president, is expected to be well enough to go home in a few days.
