George H.W. Bush hospitalized, admitted to intensive care hours after Barbara’s funeral

Former President George H.W. Bush was reportedly hospitalized just hours after he had attended the funeral service for his wife, Barbara Bush.

Bush was placed in the intensive care unit on Sunday after attending the funeral service for the former first lady Saturday. He was reportedly hospitalized due to an infection that spread to his blood.

A statement released by Bush’s spokesman Jim McGrath confirmed the report and indicated that the 41st president is responding to treatments and appears to be recovering.

The 93-year-old joined the Bush family in Texas on Saturday to say farewell to his wife of 73 years, the longest marriage of any U.S. president in history.

The Bush family matriarch died last Tuesday at the age of 92.

The former president has needed hospital treatment several times recently and was hospitalized last year when he was treated for  pneumonia and chronic bronchitis.

Bush, who served as president from 1989 to 1993, was reportedly looking forward to getting well and being released from the hospital so he could get to his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, according to McGrath, NBC reported.

“He’s the most goal-oriented person on this planet,” McGrath said.
