(Newser) – Barbara Bush spent her fourth day in the hospital today, and doctors still can't figure out what's ailing her. "We are puzzled by the illness," one tells ABC News. He wouldn't elaborate on symptoms other than to say they're not life-threatening. But doctors don't want to release Bush until they "get a break" on a diagnosis. The former first lady, 84, had open-heart surgery last year.
