Prayers went out across the nation on Christmas Eve when news was released that former President George H.W. Bush had been rushed to a Houston hospital after experiencing a shortness of breath. Doctors are keeping the 90-year-old in the hospital through the weekend as a precaution (see George H.W. Bush to remain in hospital over weekend).
The former president, affectionately known as #41, is the father of former President George W. Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush who is currently exploring a run for President.
