HOUSTON (AP) – A spokesman says former President George H.W. Bush is eager to get well so he can get to his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
    
Jim McGrath says the 93-year-old Bush is “the most goal-oriented person on this planet.”
    
Bush has been hospitalized in Houston with an infection, just after attending the funeral of his wife, Barbara. McGrath said Monday that Bush is “responding to treatments and appears to be recovering.”
    
McGrath says he was admitted Sunday morning to Houston Methodist Hospital after an infection spread to his blood. He wouldn’t elaborate on the 41st president’s condition Monday night, saying updates will be issued “as events warrant.”
    
Bush uses a wheelchair and an electric scooter for mobility after developing a form of Parkinson’s disease.
    
Barbara Bush was laid to rest Saturday.
