Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush is listed in stable condition after suffering a neck fracture in a fall at his home. His spokesman says his hospital stay is expected to be brief. But according to a Twitter statement, Bush will be in a neck brace as he recovers. Bush was last hospitalized in Houston for a week in December 2014 after experiencing breathing difficulties. He currently suffers from Parkinson's disease and cannot use his legs. But his spokesman says Bush is "as tough as they get". Not to mention, a thrill seeker... He turned heads last June when he celebrated his 90th birthday by skydiving near his home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
