Former President George H. W. Bush is back in the hospital this Memorial Day weekend, after suffering from what a family spokesperson called “fatigue,” likely brought about by low blood pressure.
The 93-year-old Bush was released from Methodist hospital in Houston only three weeks ago, after contracting an infection that spread to his blood. He had been recuperating at his family compound in Maine since May 20th. Only yesterday, he joined fellow veterans for a pancake breakfast at his local American Legion hall.
Fortunately, the Bush family spokesperson who announced George H. W. Bush’s hospitalization Sunday on Twitter says that the incident was non-life threatening and that Bush is expected to remain at Southern Maine Health Care for several days, but only for observation. He is said to be “awake and alert” according to CNN, and he is “not in any discomfort.”
Bush lost his wife Barbara Bush only last month after more than 60 years of marriage.
