While we noted earlier today that George H.W Bush had been admitted to a hospital over the weekend due to breathing problems, it appears that his condition may have deteriorated, and as AP reports, the former President has been moved to the intensive care unit of a Houston hospital, while former First Lady Barbara Bush is now also in the hospital. Bush was taken to the hospital over the weekend for shortness of breath. McGrath said earlier Wednesday that the 92 -year-old Bush was responding well to treatments.

A statement from his office issued Wednesday said the former president was treated for an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia.

“Doctors performed a procedure to protect and clear his airway that required sedation,” the statement reads. His office said Bush is stable and “resting comfortably.”

“Doctors and everyone are very pleased, and we hope to have him out soon,” McGrath added, Bush’s chief of staff, Jean Becker, told the Houston Chronicle and KHOU-TV that Bush was expected to go home in a couple of days.
