Barbara Bush remains in hospital
(01-02 09:06)

Former US first lady Barbara Bush remains in hospital with a respiratory-related issue, but her condition has not changed, a spokesman for her husband's office said Wednesday.
Bush, 88, was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital in the state of Texas on Monday, though it was not announced until former President George H.W. Bush's office released a statement Tuesday night.
“She is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care,'' the statement read, promising to provide updates as warranted.
Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the former president, said there was “nothing new to report'' on Wednesday.
In the meantime, President Barack Obama said he hopes Bush gets well soon.
“Michelle and I send our best wishes to Mrs. Bush for a speedy recovery,'' the president said in a written statement. ``Barbara is blessed to have both a loving, supportive family by her side and a vibrant spirit that we hope will have her feeling better soon.''
He added: “I know I speak for Americans everywhere when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with Barbara and her family on this New Year's Day.''—AP
