Former President George H.W. Bush is now recovering in a Houston hospital from a mild case of pneumonia - but that is not letting him get in the way for a healthy dose of family bonding.

Bush, 92, has been hospitalized with pneumonia since Friday.

Neil Bush also explained in an interview with KHOU 11 News Thursday morning that this is the third time President Bush has been in the hospital this year.

Family spokesman Jim McGrath says President Bush is remaining under observation as he continues to gain strength as he recovers. He was released from the hospital on January 30 after receiving treatment for more than two weeks. "We appreciate the outpouring of love and support for our parents", Neil Bush said.

"Big morale boost from a high level delegation", wrote the elder Bush.

Doctors admitted Bush to treat a persistent cough that was determined to be pneumonia, The Houston Chronicle reported. In January, he spent two weeks in the hospital - including time in intensive care - with pneumonia.

The former president has vascular parkinsonism, a symptom complex that shares similar ailments with Parkinson's Disease.

Bush served in the White House from 1981 to 1993 - first as Ronald Reagan's vice president, and then for a single term as president.
