    Former President George H.W. Bush in Intensive Care With Blood Infection

    Former President George H.W. Bush in Intensive Care With Blood Infection

    Admitted to hospital on Sunday.

    Former President George H.W. Bush is in intensive care with a blood infection. He buried his beloved wife Barbara on Saturday after 73 years of marriage. From CNN:

    “President Bush was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital yesterday morning after contracting an infection that spread to his blood. He is responding to treatments and appears to be recovering. We will issue additional updates as events warrant,” spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement.

    Bush was admitted to the hospital on Sunday morning, he was suffering from an infection that led to sepsis, which can be life-threatening, according to a source close to the former President. He was in critical condition, the source said.

    The source told CNN that “Bush’s blood pressure kept dropping and a couple of times there was serious concern about whether he was going to come through, but that he had been stabilized.”

    Bush stayed by Barbara’s side and held her hand all day when she passed away.

    Last April, Bush stayed in a hospital for two weeks due to pneumonia. In early 2017, he was in the hospital for pneumonia as well for 16 days and needed a ventilator in the ICU.

    Bush served as a congressman, CIA director, and vice president under President Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1989. He served as president from 1989 to 1993.

    I once practiced in an office on Woodway in Houston, in the shopping “village” that the elder Bush couple frequented. They were universally known as sweet, gracious people who everyone loved. There was a pizza place they frequented where everyone, bottom to top, delighted in their custom. Not something you see commonly in an ex-president and his lady.

    Just to stay in line with Randa Jarrar; his ‘blood infection’ is probably Ebola delivered to him via nurse by the Obama administration.

    I too think that George Bush is longing to join his wife. Those are my sentiments too, exactly, having buried my wife of 53 years a few days ago.

    I had nothing to say regarding the passing of Fmr. First Lady Barbara Bush. She was a handsome woman… She was full of life, I cannot recall any bonehead statements by First Lady Barbara Bush. Nancy Reagan had a lot to say and a lot I agreed but Nancy was a nut job at times, I remember her fondly mostly due to her devotion and care to RR during the last years of his life.

    Years ago I used to subscribe to a lot of tech mags and in one scholarly article it was explained that husband and wife over time begin to look alike. They begin to look alike because they go through life and share the same joys, and smile. They go through life and battle together the hard times and have the same grimace. Our lives are sometimes written on our faces.

    It does not surprise me to hear that Herbert Walker Bush is going to leave us so close to the passing of his beloved wife Barbara. I would be crushed and devastated in similar situation and I have not yet achieved my goal of being married to my wife for 50 years or more.

    Everyone wants to go to heaven but few people want to die. I believe that death is only a problem for the living.

    I realized, after my father died, how much he and my mom were in love still after all those years. One doesn’t think too much about it when they’re still with you, after all they’re your parents, right.
    My mother was in fine health and very active and working in the community and continued that way right up until the day I was told she’d died. There was no medical reason, she was in good health and as I said, she was still active and serving in the community. As I thought about it, I realized that this was a tender mercy from the Lord because she just couldn’t stand being away from him any more and he let them be together again.
