“We’re grateful for her and for everybody’s prayers and thoughts, and we know the world is better because she’s in it,” Bush Hager said.
Bush Hager said she spoke to her grandmother on Sunday night and said she is in “great spirits” and surrounded by family.
In a statement, the White House said the “President’s and First Lady’s prayers are with all of the Bush Family during this time.”
Bush was briefly hospitalized last year for bronchitis. George H.W. Bush, who has a form of Parkinson’s disease and has suffered from respiratory difficulties, spent two weeks at Houston Methodist Hospital last year during a bout with pneumonia.
The Bushes celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary earlier this year. They are the longest-married couple in presidential history.
