George H. Dubya Recovering

Doctors expect that George H.W. Bush will be able to return home soon after falling and breaking a bone in his neck. The incident took place on Wednesday at the 41st president's summer home in Maine.

Bush, 91, has a form of Parkinson's disease that requires him to use a wheelchair, but his granddaughter, Jenna Bush, assures us that that he's not as fragile as he seems. “He jumped out of a plane,” she told TODAY, “So I think he can manage a minor neck injury.”  A known adrenaline seeker, Daddy Bush went skydiving for his 80th, 85th, and 90th birthdays, but he thankfully promised us that he didn't intend to do any more of his own stunts after age 90.

H.W. has, however, done some concerning hospital time in recent years. He was hospitalized in late 2012 through early 2013 for almost two months due to bronchitis-related issues. And last Christmas, he spent a week in the same Houston hospital because of difficulty breathing.

All seems to be well now though, both the family and doctors confirm. George H.W. Bush's spokesman says Mr. 41 will have to wear a neck-brace once he gets out of the hospital: Nothing the former US. president can't handle.
