Former President, George H.W. Bush, has been admitted into the intensive care unit (I.C.U.) at Houston Methodist Hospital. 

Jim McGrath, the family spokesperson, said in a released statement,  "Following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever, President Bush was admitted to the intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital on Sunday where he remains in guarded condition."

Reports out this morning say that the former President is in good spirits and has been conversing with doctors and nurses by his side. However, President Bush's medication does not seem to be working when it comes to lowering his fever. The former President was recently brought to the hospital with a bronchitis-like cough.

Hospital Media spokesman David Bricker told ABC News that Houston Methodist Hospital will be releasing an updated statement on Bush's condition, but could not provide a timeline for the release.
