George Bush condition worsens

Former President George H.W. Bush 88-years-old is in the intensive care unit of a Houston hospital. Mr Bush, was moved into the specialist unit of the Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, a month after being admitted with a bronchitis-like cough.

Jim McGrath, spokesman for the former president, had said earlier that the fever was gone. Then he said: “He’s had a series of setbacks that have landed him in the intensive care unit.

“Doctors continue to be cautiously optimistic about the current course of treatment.”

McGrath also said doctors imposed a liquid diet for the former President, but could not explain why. The doctors have treated the persistent fever with Tylenol, but not yet determined the cause of the problem continues.

McGrath said in a statement.
“Following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever, President Bush was admitted to the intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital on Sunday where he remains in guarded condition,” McGrath said. “Doctors at Methodist continue to be cautiously optimistic about the current course of treatment.”
Mr Bush was admitted to hospital on November 23. It was hoped he would be home for Christmas.

Bush’s daughter, Dorothy, come to Houston on Wednesday, from Bethesda, Maryland.

Bush, the 41st U.S. president and a Republican, took office in 1989 and serve one term in the White House. He and his wife, Barbara, live in Houston during the winter and spend the summer in a house in Kennebunkport, Maine.

The former president, who is the central figure in a documentary-pilot, was Navy aviator during World War II, at the time the youngest-and was shot down in the Pacific.

After leaving the White House in 1992, George HW Bush gained notoriety having been parachuted in at least three of their birthdays.

His son, George W. Bush, the 43rd president, is among those who have visited him in the hospital.

His spokesman added: “The President is alert and conversing with medical staff, and is surrounded by family.”
