Former Pres. George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized in Maine "after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue," says family spokesman. 

Bush's spokesman, Jim McGrath, said in a tweet Sunday afternoon that the President, who is 93 years old, will likely remain at a Southern Maine Health Care facility "for a few days for observation."

"The former president is awake and alert, and not in any discomfort," McGrath continued.

Bush was previously admitted to a Houston hospital last month after contracting an infection that spread to his blood the day after a funeral was held for his wife, Barbara Bush. He was discharged from the hospital on May 4.
