HOUSTON (AP) - Former President George H.W. Bush will remain hospitalized through Christmas Day after experiencing shortness of breath two days ago.

Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Thursday evening that the 90-year-old Bush remained at Houston Methodist Hospital. McGrath said Bush “had another terrific day and is in great spirits.”

He said Bush was visited by his wife, Barbara Bush, as well as son Neil Bush.

Bush was hospitalized Tuesday night in what was reported as a precaution.

Bush is the oldest living former American president. He suffers from a form of Parkinson’s disease that has forced him to rely on a motorized scooter or wheelchair. But he’s also skydived on at least three of his birthdays since leaving the White House, including a tandem jump for his 90th birthday in June.
