Former President HW Bush is in intensive care. Since early November he's been in and out of the hospital with symptoms of fever, bronchitis, and weakness. He was forced to miss the Republican National Convention.
Although he wanted to spend Christmas at home, President Bush checked into Methodist Hospital (in Houston, TX) complaining of a very high fever. He was immediately placed in intensive care due to his age.
At 88 years old, President Bush also suffers from Parkinson's disease which further complicates his well-being. The Bush family has remained mum on the state of their patriarch, but it's safe to say that he's struggling.
We didn't always agree with the man's politics but we don't wish illness on anyone. Our prayers go out to his family.
