Former first lady Barbara Bush remains hospitalized in Houston after checking in for treatment Monday.
Bush, 88, was admitted for a "respiratory-related issue" at Houston Methodist Hospital, a statement from her husband's office said Tuesday.
She "is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care," the statement said.

"Barbara thanks @BarackObama and @BillClinton for their get-well wishes and is heeding their advice," he tweeted. "Doesnt happen w every President she knows!"
