Former President George H.W. Bush Reportedly Hospitalized In Houston

Jan 18 (Reuters) - Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized in Houston, CBS Houston affiliate KHOU television reported on Wednesday, citing his office chief of staff.

Bush, 92, was in stable condition and “doing fine,” Jean Becker told the television station. Bush is expected to go home in a couple of days, Becker told KHOU.

Reuters was not immediately able to reach the family spokesman Jim McGrath or the hospital where Bush was taken.

Bush is the father of former President George W. Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who sought the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

The elder Bush, a Republican like his sons, served as vice president during Ronald Reagan’s two White House terms before being elected president in 1988. He served four years in the White House.

Bush has used a wheelchair in his later years and was hospitalized twice in 2014 - once for seven weeks with pneumonia and again for breathing difficulties. In July 2015 he broke a bone in his neck in a fall at the family home in Maine.

Bush’s public appearances have been rare since he entered his 90s. In October 2015, Bush, sitting his wheelchair, wearing a brace on his neck and clad in a Houston Astros jersey, tossed out the first pitch at the team’s playoff game against the Kansas City Royals.

He marked the 75th anniversary of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor in 2016 by attending a ceremony at his library at Texas A&M University where Bob Dole, the former Republican Senator from Kansas, was presented an award for public service.

At least now he has an excuse to not go watch the king of fools be inaugurated.

Quoting trippyhippy: At least now he has an excuse to not go watch the king of fools be inaugurated.

My understanding is he was not planning to attend anyway.

I wish him well...

According to the very nice letter he sent to Trump his doctor told him being outside in the cold would put him six feet under. He and Barbara will be there in spirit.

I saw a report that Barbara had also been admitted to the hospital for fatigue and a bad cough.
