Former President George H.W. Bush received a "big morale boost" Thursday when his son, former President George W. Bush, visited him in a Houston hospital.

Bush, 92, the oldest living former USA president, has been hospitalized several times in recent years for a variety of problems. According to a spokesperson, he is in "good spirits" and "already well on the path to recovery". "It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved".

Family spokesman Jim McGrath says President Bush is remaining under observation as he continues to gain strength as he recovers.

Bush, who served as president from 1989 to 1993, had spent 16 days in the hospital for treatment of pneumonia in January.

Bush, who served as U.S. president from 1989 to 1993, received a visit from yet another former president earlier this month Bill Clinton, who presented him with new socks.

He is the father of former President George W. Bush, who served two terms in the White House from 2001 through 2009, and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who unsuccessfully sought the 2016 Republican nomination for president.
