Former President George H.W. Bush in Hospital

The annual memorial day parade in Kennebunkport is a bit different this year. Typically, former First Lady Babara Bush and former President George HW Bush watch the parade in Dock Square.

But this year, the elder former president is in Southern Maine Medical Center in Biddeford, a little more than a month after Barbara Bush died.

A family spokesman says that the 41st president was feeling fatigued and had low blood pressure. His hospitalization comes just one week after he returned to his summer home at Walker's Point.

The 93-year-old is expected to be there for several days, but is said to be awake and alert.
