GEORGE H.W. BUSH NOW IN INTENSIVE CARE;
BARBARA BUSH ALSO HOSPITALIZED


Updated 2 hrs 8 mins ago

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former President George H.W. Bush was admitted
Wednesday to the intensive care unit of a Houston hospital with
pneumonia, and his wife, Barbara, was hospitalized as a precaution.


The 92-year-old former president, who had been hospitalized since
Saturday, was placed in the ICU at Houston Methodist Hospital to address
"an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia," family
spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement. The former first lady was
also hospitalized after experiencing fatigue and coughing.

Doctors performed a procedure "to protect and clear his airway that
required sedation," McGrath said in the statement. Bush was stable and
resting comfortably in the ICU, where he was to stay for observation.

"I don't think there's a whole lot of money to be gained betting against
George Bush," McGrath said. "We're just kind of in a wait-and-see mode."

Poppy's family and doctors are
reportedly in a wait-and-see mode.

Aren't we ALL! Wink lol Laughing

At this very difficult time, my sentiments
can't but extend to the whole Bush family.

I hope they ALL die. Wink

We have been here before back in late 2012.
It was touch and go - but
the ol' ba***rd got better:

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."

"There's hope yet....," Percy said, back in 2012.

Indeed Percy. We salute your fortitude.

There's always hope. Wink




Mr. GHW Bush Seen In Happier Times
With The Hired Help.

I think Trump's people have the area post-natal wards on lockdown. Laughing
But a break-in at a research facility reports missing virgins' blood?.....

Former president’s movement
disorder mimics Parkinson’s


Former President George H.W. Bush, who has been placed in intensive
care at a Houston hospital, is suffering from pneumonia and has vascular
parkinsonism, a rare syndrome that mimics Parkinson’s disease.

The 92-year-old Bush also broke a vertebra in 2015 and has used a
motorized scooter or a wheelchair in recent years. Some answers to
common questions about his health:


___

Q: WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF PNEUMONIA?

A: Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that can be mild or severe. Elderly patients are at risk of deadly complications.

The former president wrote to President-elect Donald Trump on Jan. 10, saying that he would be unable to attend Friday’s inauguration because of doctor’s orders: “My doctor says if I sit outside in January, it will likely put me six feet under. Same for Barbara. So I guess we’re stuck in Texas.”

___

Q: WHAT IS VASCULAR PARKINSONISM?

A: People diagnosed with the condition walk with shuffling steps, and brain scans suggest they have suffered small strokes. However, they do not have the characteristic tremors of Parkinson’s disease, and they do not respond to drugs for Parkinson’s.

“They look like Parkinson’s from the waist down. From the waist up, they look very expressive,” said Dr. Alberto Espay of the University of Cincinnati’s Gardner Neuroscience Institute.

___

Q: WHO GETS IT?

A: People in their 70s and older are most likely be diagnosed, said Dr. Tanya Simuni who conducts research on Parkinson’s and other movement disorders at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago. She calls it a “difficult diagnosis” because of the lack of accurate diagnostic tests.

The risk factors are the same as for stroke and heart disease: history of smoking, lack of exercise and poor diet. It’s rarer than Parkinson’s disease, which affects about 1 million Americans. In contrast, roughly 20,000 people have been told they have vascular parkinsonism.

___

Q: HOW IS IT TREATED?

A: Since the condition does not respond well to drugs used to treat Parkinson’s disease, treatment relies on lowering the risk factors for stroke. That means quitting smoking, exercising, eating a healthy diet and perhaps taking a daily aspirin. Preventing falls is important, so a patient may receive physical therapy to improve balance.

___

Q: IS THERE A CURE?

A: Physical therapy can help with balance and walking, but the damage cannot be reversed, said Dr. Corneliu Luca, assistant professor of neurology at University of Miami. “If you do not control risk factors for stroke, they can have another stroke, and the walking can get even worse,” Luca said.

___

Q: WHAT COMPLICATIONS ARE MOST WORRISOME?

A: Falls are the biggest concern because they can lead to fractures, Simuni said. Bush took a spill in 2015 and fractured his C2 vertebra, the second one below the skull. It’s not known whether that fall was directly related to parkinsonism.

It's obviously too much to expect him to finally do the decent thing for once. After all, he never has before.
