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.
Bush is expected to return home “in a couple of days,” according to KHOU.
