America's Former First Lady Barbara Bush is receiving treatment for a respiratory-related condition after she was hospitalised in Texas this week (beg30Dec13). The 88 year old, wife of former president George H. W. Bush, was admitted to a medical centre in Houston on Monday (30Dec13). A family spokesman says, "She is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care." Current President Barack Obama has since spoken out to send well wishes to Bush, saying, "(My wife) Michelle and I send our best wishes to Mrs. Bush for a speedy recovery... (I) know I speak for Americans everywhere when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with Barbara and her family." Former president Bill Clinton also commented on Bush's health crisis in a post on his Twitter.com page, writing, "I'll be rooting for Barbara Bush's full recovery... All the best to her and to @GeorgeHWBush."
