HOUSTON (AP) — Former first lady Barbara Bush was in a Houston hospital Tuesday after complaining of a "little bit of pain."

Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Mrs. Bush went to Methodist Hospital as a precaution. She had been experiencing some pain this week, but McGrath did not know what it was.

McGrath said all of the results for tests she had undergone had been negative. Mrs. Bush could be held overnight to watch her condition.

McGrath said former President George H.W. Bush was with her. Mrs. Bush is 83.

The former Barbara Pierce, daughter of the publisher of McCall's magazine, married George H.W. Bush in January 1945 when he returned a hero from World War II.
