HOUSTON (AP) - Former President George H.W. Bush remains hospitalized in Houston after experiencing shortness of breath.

Spokesman Jim McGrath said in an email Wednesday that "all is well," but that there was "no new news to report."

The 90-year-old Bush was taken by ambulance Tuesday evening to Houston Methodist Hospital. McGrath said the former president was hospitalized as a "precaution."

Bush spent nearly two months in the same hospital before being discharged in January 2013, after treatment for a bronchitis-related cough and other issues.

Bush has made a couple recent public appearances, including at a November event with his son, former President George W. Bush.

White House spokesman Eric Schultz says President Barack Obama and the first lady "send their good wishes" to the elder Bush and his family.
