HOUSTON – Just days after having to say goodbye to his wife Barbara Bush, the former president needed to be hospitalized after Saturday’s funeral in College Station. The family released a statement:
“President Bush was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital yesterday morning after contracting an infection that spread to his blood. He is responding to treatments and appears to be recovering. We will issue additional updates as events warrant.”
Social media posts wishing the former president to get better started pouring in.

It’s sad that George H.W. Bush is in critical condition at a hospital suffering from a blood infection that lead to sepsis, after attending & burying his wife Barbara Bush. But, I also believe that some people die “of a lonely heart.”
