Ex-President George H.W. Bush In Intensive Care
"Though he is reportedly alert and enjoying a "running banter` with his nurses, former President George H.W. Bush is in the intensive care unit at Houston`s Methodist Hospital.
The Houston Chronicle writes that `Jim McGrath, Bush`s spokesman in Houston, said the 88-year-old`s fever rose on Wednesday, but doctors at Methodist Hospital report he is doing better than the day before. He was admitted to the ICU on Sunday.`"
Historians and regular folks tend to think warmly of the nation`s 41st president. George H. W. Bush was kinder, gentler and more intelligent than his son George W. Bush.
If more Republicans today were like the senior Bush we wouldn`t be facing a fiscal cliff or foreign entanglements in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other parts of the world.
But right now it`s Bush the father and grandfather that we think of, let`s remember him in our thoughts. Bush has been in the hospital since the day after Thanksgiving, and we are all hoping for a complete recovery.
