HOUSTON (AP) — A family spokesman says former President George H.W. Bush will remain hospitalized “to continue regaining strength” as he recovers from an infection requiring his hospitalization a day after his wife’s funeral.

Bush was admitted April 22 to Houston Methodist Hospital. He’s being treated for an infection that spread to his blood.

Bush has a form of Parkinson’s disease and a history of pneumonia and other infections.
