Former President George H.W. Bush has been rushed to intensive care, just one day after his wife of 73-years, Barbara Bush, was laid to rest.


According to NBC, the former president was taken to a Houston hospital on Sunday after contracting an infection which spread to his blood.

A Bush family spokesperson said the 94-year-old is “responding to treatments and appears to be recovering.”


NPR are reporting the former president has been hospitalized for both bronchitis and pneumonia in recent years. He also uses a wheelchair due to suffering from a disease which mimics the effects of Parkinson’s.
