Former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized at Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas since this past Saturday, his spokesperson confirmed on Wednesday. Bush was admitted to this hospital suffering shortness of breath and is reportedly doing well and responding to treatments. He is expected to be released soon.

It's been a tumultuous couple of years for the 92-year-old former president. He suffered a fall in 2015 and fractured a bone in his neck, requiring a neck brace for several months.

On Twitter, people expressed well-wishes and prayers for his speedy recovery:

Get well soon, 41!
