It’s never good news when a man of his age winds up in the ICU.

Doesn’t sound good, the reports keep getting more
serious. When you have to go into hospital for a cough
it’s probably pneumonia.
Prayers for the Bush family.

Prayers up!! I never liked the fact that he has been in the hospital for so long, especially someone of his advanced age. The quicker someone his age leaves the hospital the better, the longer he stays there the more prone he is to getting infections from the hospital.

I’ve had a bad feeling for the last week. When you are 88 an in the hospital that long its not good. I hope something happens and he recovers but Fox News says all three sons are there so I’m sure the doctors told them to stick around. Very sad.

I am not a doctor, but if he has bronchitis or pneumonia it is very serious for a man of his age. My father died of pneumonia right before Christmas. The doctor told me that my pop did not have the strength to cough and clear out his lungs. Prayers up.

Prayers to you and your family Mr. President.

My even greater fear, is having to listen to another eulogy that includes 30 minutes of Obama’s life history part 10.

The man is 88 yo. He has lived a very FULL life. He can't walk and doesn’t know what state he is in a lot of the time. Let him go. If he is a born again Christian, he will have full recovery.I pray for peace for his wife and family. He is a good man.

Bush’s first real job led all the way to the Presidency. That is the reason he smiles.

May profound peace, joy, and love descend on the entire family.

Whether he travels on the road to recovery or another road, may God place complete and utter well-being in Pres. Bush's soul now and always.

Lord, bless them all.

Often, liquid diets are used to give the body a break due to sickness or stress.

A lung and respiratory liquid diet, like all liquid diets, lacks fiber, protein and fat. It is harmful to the body to go without these nutrients for any extended period of time.

Prayers offered. . . . .also if there is anyone close to the family reading these posts, try some of the higher ppm silver biotics (non-collodial) American Labs. Good for bronchitis, everything. Has worked miracles (with God’s divine intervention) in our immediate family. Research Dr. Pedersen.
