Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized in Maine for low blood pressure and fatigue, according to his spokesman.

Bush, 93, was taken to Southern Main Health Care where "he will likely remain there for a few days for observation," spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted Sunday.

"The former president is awake and alert, and not in any discomfort," he continued. McGrath didn't say when Bush was admitted to the hospital.

Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on April 22 for an infection following the funeral of his wife, former First Lady Barbara Bush. He was released on May 4 after spending some time in the intensive care unit.

McGrath has said the nation's 41st President wanted to recover soon so he could travel to his summer home in Maine.
