Barbara Bush recovers from surgery


HOUSTON (KWWL) -- Former first lady Barbara Bush is spending Thanksgiving in a Texas hospital following surgery.

Mrs. Bush is recovering after having laparoscopic surgery for a perforated ulcer.

When the former first lady was brought into the emergency room of Methodist Hospital in Houston Tuesday night, she told doctors she was in the worst pain she'd ever been in.

Former president George H.W. Bush has been with his wife at the hospital. Mrs. Bush is expected to remain in the hospital until next week.
