Former President George H.W. Bush has had his breathing return to “normal,” though he remained in the hospital overnight awaiting a final okay from his doctors, his spokesperson said Monday.

“Both President and Mrs. Bush wish to thank everyone for their good wishes and prayers,” spokesman Jim McGrath said in a tweet.

Bush, the oldest living President, was hospitalized last Tuesday as a precautionary measure after experiencing shortness of breath. He spent Christmas at the Houston Methodist Hospital, where he was in “great spirits.”

The former President, who has a form of Parkinson’s disease and uses a wheelchair, recently celebrated his 90th birthday by skydiving under a red, white and blue parachute.
