Former President George H. W. Bush was hospitalized for shortness of breath over the weekend, his spokesman tells NPR.
Bush was brought to a Houston-area hospital on Saturday and "has responded very well to treatments," Jim McGrath said. "We hope to have him out soon."
Bush, 92, is the oldest living U.S. president. (Jimmy Carter is a little more than three months his junior.)
As The Associated Press notes, Bush "has a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility."
