Spokeswoman: Barbara Bush Hospitalized In Texas

Becker says Bush hasn't been feeling well for about a week, and doctors suggested she "undergo a battery of tests." She declined to provide details.

Becker says Bush is expected to be released in a day or two.

She says former President George H.W. Bush drove his wife to the hospital Saturday morning.

Mrs. Bush underwent heart surgery in March 2009, for a severe narrowing of the main heart valve. She also was hospitalized in November 2008, when she underwent surgery perforated ulcer.

    She is lucky to be able to get that kind of care, here if someone her age is sick and needs testing, they don't do them and certainly do not allow them to stay in the hospitol unless they are deathly sick.
