Former President George H.W. Bush plans to return to his summer home in Kennebunkport sometime during the week of May 21, a spokesman for the 41st president has confirmed.

Bush plans to arrive next week, but spokesman Jim McGrath told News Center Maine (WCSH-TV) that the exact day and time of arrival are still being worked out.

Bush’s visit to his estate on Walker’s Point will the first since his wife, Barbara, died in April at the age of 92. The Bushes were married for 73 years.

Bush, who is 93, has had some health problems of his own. He was hospitalized shortly after her death with a blood infection and spent some time in intensive care at a Houston hospital before he was released.
