George HW Bush Hospitalized for Blood Infection

George HW Bush Hospitalized for Blood Infection”

REUTERS/Richard Carson Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush attends the funeral service for his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, with his son the 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas, U.S., April 21, 2018.

Former President George H W Bush and Barbara were married for 73 years.

CNN reported that Bush, who suffers from a form of Parkinson's disease that has left him unable to walk, was admitted to the intensive care unit but has been "stabilized". He was hospitalized twice a year ago, including a two week stay in January that required a trip to the intensive care unit.

"I always knew Barbara was the most beloved woman in the world, and in fact I used to tease her that I had a complex about that fact", Bush said after his wife's passing.

His doctors said chronic bronchitis was a condition more prevalent with age and could aggravate the symptoms of pneumonia.

Bush was hospitalized for 16 days in January 2017 for pneumonia. In 2015 he was admitted as a result of breaking a bone in his neck.

"And the stress of losing a loved one can weaken the immune system", he said. Infections that spread to the blood usually are not viral, however, he said.

Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath says 93-year-old former President George H.W. Bush is eager to get well so he can get to his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

Former President George H.W. Bush, 93, was hospitalized and in intensive care after contracting an infection that spread to his blood.
