George H. W. Bush Hospitalized One Day After Barbara Bush’s Funeral

HeadlineApr 24, 2018

And George H. W. Bush has been hospitalized and is in a Houston intensive care unit with sepsis, after an infection spread into his bloodstream. A spokesperson for the 93-year-old former president said Bush is “responding to treatments and appears to be recovering.” Bush’s hospitalization came one day after he attended a funeral for his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush. Saturday’s funeral was also attended by other former presidents and first ladies: George W. and Laura Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Barack and Michelle Obama. First lady Melania Trump also joined, but President Trump remained at his golf resort in Mar-a-Lago, where the White House says he watched the funeral on television.
