George H. W. Bush still in hospital after three weeks. According to the Daily Mail, the former president was admitted to the Methodist Hospital after he was hospitalized in Houston with bronchitis. Bush had originally gone to the hospital the day after Thanksgiving with a lingering cough, and doctors had feared he would develop pneumonia.
As previously reported by The Inquisitir, a week ago George H. W. Bush was listed as in stable condition but that complications with the bronchitis and Parkinson’s disease might be of concern. Though there has been improvement in Bush’s condition over the last few days, doctors are in no rush to release him. His stay is also longer than expected.
“[George H. W. Bush’s] big problem is a chronic cough, he can’t get rid of so he’s back at Methodist,” Bush chief of staff Jean Becker said. “We have kept this quiet out of respect for him.”
George H. W. Bush has been visiting the Methodist Hospital several times in recent weeks, and family friends believes Bush’s busy schedule has something to do with it according to a family friend:
“[Bush has] been overdoing it lately. He’s always been that way but he just doesn’t have the strength anymore to keep it up.”
Although there have been complications related to Bush’s bronchitis, the hospital believes he is in stable condition and is expected to be released within the next 72 hours. Still, if the former president has a sudden turn for the worse he believes he’s prepared.
“I think about death,” George H. W. Bush said. “I wonder what it’s like. There’s people in heaven I want to see, definitely.”
