Former first lady Barbara Bush has been hospitalized in Houston with a respiratory-related issue, her husband's office said Tuesday night.
The statement from the office of former President George H.W. Bush said Mrs. Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Monday.
"She is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care," the brief statement said.
Just last week, Mrs. Bush, 88, and her husband, the 41st president, honored a Houston businessman and philanthropist with a Points of Light Award, a volunteer service award started by the former president.

George W. Bush may have stepped away from the political spotlight, but he seems to have won the popular (audience) vote – on Tuesday's The Tonight Show.
The former president stopped by to chat with Jay Leno, matching wits with the host as he unfurled a series of off-the-cuff zingers that left both Leno and his audience in stitches.
Case in point: When the host asked why he finally accepted Leno's invitation to return to the show (this was his fourth appearance on it), a deadpan Bush, 67, slyly jabbed at Leno's upcoming exit from the show.
"You're about to head out to pasture – just wanted to see what you looked like before you got to the gate," Bush cracked.

Universe's cutest astronaut?
It must be Mila Hager, whose first Halloween was out of this world, as she dressed up as one of NASA's finest and went trick-or-treating with her grandparents George W. and Laura Bush.
Proud mom Jenna Bush Hager posted two photos on Twitter of the 6-month-old posing with each of her parents. "Grandpa-jefe discussing astronomy with his space babe," she wrote of Mila and the former President.

It was a girls' day across the bridge for new mom Jenna Bush Hager.
The former presidential daughter stepped out on Wednesday with her daughter Mila, 5 months, in tow as they headed off from their Manhattan apartment to a friend's baby shower in Brooklyn.
Wearing a casual black short skirt, flats and carrying a large bag on her shoulder, Hager gently snuggled her growing daughter as they prepared to leave for their day trip.

The Rev. Bernice King opened the celebration of her father's famous "I Have a Dream" speech Wednesday with an interfaith service in Washington.
King said that her father, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., is often remembered as a freedom fighter for equal rights and human rights. But she said he was most importantly a man of faith. She says he was a prophet and "faith leader" and it was "the spirit of God that infused that movement."
The faith community must continue to lead every movement for justice and equality, Bernice King said.
