Wednesday morning, Jenna Bush Hager and the rest of the country woke up to the news that her grandfather, former president George H. W. Bush had been hospitalized.
On the Today Show Wednesday, Bush Hager took a moment to thank everyone for their messages of love and support.
“How lucky for our whole family that we have people that think about us and pray for us,” Bush Hager said while guest hosting on “Kathie Lee and Hoda.”
She shared a selfie that she and her sister took with their loving grandfather.
“I adore him. He’s the best,” said Bush Hager. “He’s really one of the most humble, wonderful men in the world.”
Bush’s chief of staff, Jean Becker, told KHOU that Bush, 92, is “doing fine.”
Jim McGrath, spokesman for Bush and his wife, Barbara, later tweeted that Bush was taken to Houston Methodist Hospital on Saturday for “shortness of breath” and “has responded very well to treatments.”
“Hope to have him out soon,” McGrath added.
In a later update, McGrath said Barbara Bush was admitted to the same hospital Wednesday morning as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing.
