KHOU 11 spoke with the younger Bush at an event for his mother's literacy foundation.

"He was down and considered kind of iffy in terms of how he'd bounce back. Doctors said he'd be in the intensive care unit for a week. He came back in two days."

'He has a strong desire to live ... life goes on."

Neil was also emotional speaking about his mom and her legacy.
