PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A spokesman for George H.W. Bush says doctors are pleased with the progress the former president is making since he fractured a bone in his neck during a fall last week.
 
Jim McGrath said Sunday that Bush is doing better and his spirits are good.
 
The 91-year-old Bush took a tumble at his summer home in Kennebunkport on Wednesday and remains hospitalized.
