(UDHAYAM, UNITED STATES) – Former President George H. W. Bush has been hospitalized, according to the Houston Chronicle and Houston TV station KHOU.
Bush’s chief of staff, Jean Becker, says he was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital after falling ill.
Becker tells the Houston Chronicle and KHOU that Bush is “doing fine.”
Bush, who served a single-term as President from 1988 to 1992, was not expected to attend the inauguration of the 45th President, Donald J. Trump, in Washington on Friday due to health concerns.
Several bouts with illness have kept the 92-year-old out of the spotlight in recent years and he has rarely made public remarks.
