Former U.S. President George H. W. Bush will remain at a local hospital for observation after being hospitalized for a mild pneumonia, according to a statement released by the hospital on Monday.

The 92-year-old man will continue to rest at the Houston Methodist Hospital, and remain under observation for a few more days. His medical team hopes to discharge him by the end of the week.
