Former President George W. Bush updated America Thursday on the conditions of his parents George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush who had been hospitalized this week earlier this week.

He posted an encouraging message on his official Instagram account:

The message reads, "Your prayers are working: 41 and Mom are doing much better today and fighting on. Thanks for your messages of love and support for Mother and Dad. @Laurawbush and I look forward to representing them at the Inauguration tomorrow while they continue to recover in Houston."

Former President H.W. Bush had been hospitalized on Saturday for shortness of breath but was then diagnosed with pneumonia and put in ICU care with sedation. His wife, 91-year-old Barbara Bush was hospitalized as a precaution when she experienced fatigue and coughing.

The elder Bush had already planned on missing President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, saying that his doctor told him it would be very dangerous to make the trip in his health. He added, “I want you to know that I wish you the very best as you begin this incredible journey of leading our great country,” in the apologizing letter to Trump.
