Former President George H.W. Bush was released from a medical facility in Maine on Sunday after last week fracturing a vertebra in his neck. Bush, 91, reportedly fell down at his family's holiday home in Kennebunkport, Maine, on Wednesday. Dr. William D'Angelo, a neurosurgeon who treated Bush, told CNN it would take an estimated three to four months for someone of his age to recover. In 2012 Bush was hospitalized after contracting bronchitis, and in 2013 doctors diagnosed him with a form of Parkinson's disease. In 2014 he was hospitalized after suffering a shortness of breath. He can no longer walk unassisted, according to relatives.
