Less than two weeks after celebrating their 72nd wedding anniversary, former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush, have been hospitalized.

Via ABC 13:

George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized at the Texas Medical Center for pneumonia. A spokesperson tells Eyewitness News he was admitted to the ICU at Houston Methodist Hospital to address an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia. Doctors performed a procedure to protect and clear his airway that required sedation. President Bush is stable and resting comfortably in the ICU, where he will remain for observation.

Additionally, Mrs. Bush was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital this morning as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing.

I wish Mr. and Mrs. Bush a speedy recovery.
