Comfortable: Bush is staying at Methodist Hospital in Houston and has promised 'not to get too grumpy' for the extended visit to the hospital
A persistent fever that kept former President George H.W. Bush in a hospital over Christmas has gotten worse, and doctors have put him on a liquids-only diet, his spokesman said Wednesday.
Jim McGrath, Bush's spokesman in Houston, had said earlier in the day that the fever had gone away, but he later corrected himself.
'It's an elevated fever, so it's actually gone up in the last day or two,' McGrath told The Associated Press. 'It's a stubborn fever that won't go away.'
Yes, Obama most assuredly does want his guns, yours, and mine.
That is really crass and has no place in a discussion such as this. Wish the man well and save the politics for the political threads.
It’s that time of year. There is definitely something going around here in Massachusetts. So far, my husband and I have escaped it, but that may not last, even though Mr. T did have a flu shot earlier this month, as he usually does. The shot seems to help, but it’s not bullet-proof.
FR IS a political forum and if you don’t like what I wrote ignore it instead of barking out orders like you’re the Queen of England or Obama.
He cannot have them, Laz. Please take comfort in knowing, should he decide he is going to confiscate guns, sooner or later, he will have to come to Texas. We got your back, Laz. Not gonna happen. And you have a wonderful New Years.
How many fingers am I holding up? And the pleasure was all mine.
Get well Mr. President, sir. You are one tough old cat. :)=^..^=
The communists/democrats have to get through us in Louisiana also
Let them come and try to take them or to get me
I don’t know...I’m blind from a stick in one eye and a hot cigarette in the other.
rofl....I shall post to you in braille. I am SO sorry.
Don’t be sorry. I learned to read Braille working in the operating room and need to keep up my skill level.
What an amazing resemblance to his granddaughter Barbara
Former President George H.W. Bush remained hospitalized on Friday but was showing signs of improvement, a family spokesman said.
“President Bush remains in the intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital, where he continues to improve,” spokesman Jim McGrath said in a prepared statement. “The president is alert and, as always, in good spirits — and his exchanges with doctors and nurses now include singing.”
My wife and I wish him well. A good man, a combat vet and a heckuva first baseman. Only drawback is the same as his son, the streetfighter in them was bred out.
True, but what is even MORE baffling, is why I would post this image.
