"He is in stable condition, and is expected to be released within the next 72 hours," the statement added.

According to CNN, Bush has a form of Parkinson's disease that affects his legs and requires him to use a wheelchair.

He was previously hospitalized overnight in 2007 after a fainting spell caused by dehydration and hot weather while golfing in California, the report said.
