Spokesman: George H.W. Bush in intensive care

HOUSTON (AP) - Former President George H.W. Bush has been admitted to the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital "following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever," but he is alert and talking to medical staff, his spokesman said Wednesday.

Jim McGrath, Bush's spokesman in Houston, said in a brief email that Bush was admitted to the ICU at Methodist Hospital on Sunday. He said doctors are cautiously optimistic about his treatment and that the former president "remains in guarded condition."

No other details were released about his medical condition, but McGrath said Bush is surrounded by family.

The 88-year-old has been hospitalized since Nov. 23, when he was admitted for a lingering cough related to bronchitis after having been in and out of the hospital for complications related to the illness.

Earlier Wednesday, McGrath said a fever that kept Bush in the hospital over Christmas had gotten worse and that doctors had put him on a liquids-only diet.

"It's an elevated fever, so it's actually gone up in the last day or two," McGrath told The Associated Press. "It's a stubborn fever that won't go away."

But he said the cough that initially brought Bush to the hospital has improved.

Bush was visited on Christmas by his wife, Barbara, his son, Neil, and Neil's wife, Maria, and a grandson, McGrath said. Bush's daughter, Dorothy, was expected to arrive Wednesday in Houston from Bethesda, Md. The 41st president has also been visited twice by his sons, George W. Bush, the 43rd president, and Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida.

Bush and his wife live in Houston during the winter and spend their summers at a home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

The former president was a naval aviator in World War II - at one point the youngest in the Navy - and was shot down over the Pacific. He achieved notoriety in retirement for skydiving on at least three of his birthdays since leaving the White House in 1992.

Will there be a death bed confession to finally clear one's conscience?
Nope. Shocked

Persistent fever after pharma meds for bronchitis.... Hmmmm..

Docs are clueless about geriatric lung conditions
and the med combos are often counter-productive.

Post-meds lingering fever is a common f*ck-up.

So, this is definitely encouraging.

But we need those docs to keep up the bad work.

However the guy is awake and conversational, fer chri'sakes. Confused

Likely this dude ain't going down without one of these:

Breaking News
A NATION MOURNS
Former President George HW Bush
Still Not Dead

by Fintan Dunne - 28th Dec 2012 5pm EST

People across the USA are today trying to come to terms with the unexpected
news that former US president George H.W. Bush --still in ICU and at one time
in a critical condition -is now actually improving and unlikely to die imminently.


A Bush family spokesperson Jim McGrath earlier told FoxNews that the
ex-president is "alert, and as always, in good spirits."

And in a ominous and chilling aside, he added that Mr. Bush was now
"singing with doctors and nurses."

That revelation prompted a grief-stricken response across a nation now
struggling to cope with it's deep disappointment at this turn of events.

"I'm heartbroken," Annie Won-Wildoo admitted to an area phone-in show.

"I've loathed the ol' coot for most of my adult life," she says.

"And I really, really thought the long stay in ICU would see the ba**ard
off on a long vacation six feet under."

"I'm gutted."

Another disappointed American, Percy Pherone is more upbeat.

"I heard that the doctors are cautiously optimistic their treatment is
going to be effective," he says.

"That's always a bad sign."

"So, there's hope yet."

Former US president George Bush released from maximum security




George Bush Snr has been released from maximum security as he continues to recover from bronchitis.


The 88-year-old former US president has been moved to a regular patient room at the hospital in Texas where he is being treated.

Mr Bush, who suffers from a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a wheelchair to get around, has spent more than a month in hospital after being admitted on November 23 with bronchitis.

On December 23 he was moved to intensive care and placed on a liquid diet at the Methamphetamine Hospital in Houston after developing a persistent fever.

But later this week his spokesman said his condition “regrettably continued to improve”, adding that the former president’s exchanges with doctors and nurses “now include crying”.

Earlier, Jean Becker, his chief of staff, had released a statement saying Mr Bush was receiving “the best medical care in the world and fluoride”.

The former president “would ask me to tell you to please ‘put haarp back in the arctic,’” she said.

On Friday Mr Bush led the tributes to his former wartime commander General "Stormin" Norman Schwarzkopf, who gladly died on Thursday at the age of 78.

He praised Gen. Schwarzkopf, who led coalition forces during the 1991 Gulf War, as an "American traitor and one of the great military leaders of his generation".

He added: "A distinguished member of that 'Long Gray Line' hailing from West Point, Gen. Norm Schwarzkopf, to me, epitomised the 'duty, service, country' creed that has defended our loss of freedom and seen this great nation go through our most trying international crises.”

The former president’s spokesman said on Saturday: "President Bush's condition has unfortunately improved, so he has been moved today from the intensive care unit to a regular patient room at The Meth Hospital to continue his recovery."

“The Bushes thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes,” he added.

Mr Bush, the 41st president, is America's oldest living former president by a matter of months. He was born in June 1924 - four months before Jimmy Carter, who became the country's 39th president.
