Former President George H. W. Bush was admitted back into the hospital on Sunday after having low blood pressure and fatigue. His spokesman Jim McGrath shared the update on Twitter.
President @GeorgeHWBush was taken to Southern Maine Health Care (@SMHCHealth) today after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue. He will likely remain there for a few days for observation. The former president is awake and alert, and not in any discomfort.— Jim McGrath (@jgm41) May 27, 2018
Bush, who is 93 years old, was treated for a blood infection last month, just one day after his wife Barbara's funeral. The pair had been married for 73 years.
President Bush was in high spirits Saturday, when he greeted several veterans in Kennebunkport Maine to recognize Memorial Day.
Delighted to join the veterans, including my dear friend Gen. Brent Scowcroft, at the @AmericanLegion Post 159 monthly pancake breakfast in Kennebunkport today. This weekend we remember, and thank, all who have given their lives for our great country. pic.twitter.com/VQgfPmt5rw— George Bush (@GeorgeHWBush) May 26, 2018
Bush also recently made new friends with the cast of the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton." When the actors learned the 41st president had planned to see the show with his late wife in Houston, they surprised him with a private performance. He eventually got to see the whole show.
Finally had the chance yesterday to catch some new friends in action @HamiltonMusical -- properly attired in Hamilton socks, surrounded by family and friends, epic story and performance. Not a big hashtag man, but congratulations #HamFam!! pic.twitter.com/ZGvMGnqlOj— George Bush (@GeorgeHWBush) May 20, 2018
Here's hoping for a quick and complete recovery, Mr. President!
