Default Ghw bush: Pneumonia:

Former President George H. W. Bush is currently hospitalized in Houston following a "mild case of pneumonia," but is "doing fine," his spokesman said late Tuesday afternoon.

According to a statement from Bush's office, he "was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Friday due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest." Doctors eventually treated the 41st president for pneumonia which "has been resolved."

"President Bush is in very good spirits and is being held for further observation while he regains his strength," the statement concludes.

This stay marks the second time this year that Bush, 92, has been hospitalized. In January, he missed the inauguration of President Donald Trump during a 12-day hospitalization for shortness of breath and pneumonia. During that stay, his wife Barbara Bush was also admitted for a period due to a case of bronchitis.

In Tuesday's statement, Bush's office notes that he "is in very good spirits and is being held for further observation while he regains his strength."

That's true.

Bush41 was my first vote ever in any election and I'm a Desert Shield/Storm veteran. I truly wish him luck and good health.

Same here, was too young for Reagan.

Makes me worried...he's pretty old, and been in and out of the hospital a lot.

Indeed. Not a good sign at all.

As Desert Shield/Storm guy myself I too hold a fond place in my heart for GHWB. I did sneek a vote in for Reagan, and joined right at the end of his term.....but GHWB was my wartime commander-in-chief.



He's getting pretty old....and these trips seem to be more frequent. Hope he recovers....but one of these times he won't.
