Barbara Bush, the former First Lady of the United States, is hospitalized in Houston, Texas, according to a CNN report on Tuesday evening. Mrs. Bush, the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, is being treated for a respiratory-related issue, says a spokesperson for the family.

Mrs. Bush, 88, went to Methodist Hospital on Monday. On New Year’s Eve, the latest report reveals that she is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care. The statement informed the media and public that updates about her condition will be issued when they are warranted.

George H.W. Bush was the 41st President of the United States, and he also was the Vice President for two terms – serving in with President Ronald Reagan.

Mrs. Bush’s cause as First Lady was literacy. It was in 1989 that she formed the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.
