Spokesman: George H.W. Bush in intensive care
By By RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI, Associated Press – 1 minute ago

HOUSTON (AP) — A spokesman says former President George H.W. Bush is in the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital.

Bush's spokesman, Jim McGrath, said late Wednesday that the former president was admitted to the ICU on
Sunday at Methodist Hospital, "following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever."

McGrath says Bush is alert and conversing with medical staff, and that doctors are cautiously optimistic about his treatment.

No other details about his medical condition were provided, but McGrath says Bush is surrounded by family.

Earlier Wednesday, McGrath said a fever that kept Bush in the hospital over Christmas had gotten worse and that doctors had put him on a liquids-only diet.

A bronchitis-like cough initially brought Bush to the hospital in late November. McGrath says the cough has improved.

I was going to start the death watch thread, but you beat me to it.

Good luck bro indeed. He was the last president that I considered a true patriot. Served in combat, CIA, and just a decent fella. Will be sorry to see him go.

I hope he pulls through. He did get really old and frail looking fast. Either that or he has been looking that way and I didn't notice because he hasn't been in the news much over the last decade.

It happens that way sometimes. I just had my Snap On tools
dealer die last week. From the time he was diagnosed and stopped
working til he died was about 1 1/2 months.

Doctors at Methodist Hospital in Houston have run tests and are treating the fever with Tylenol, but they still haven't nailed down a cause, McGrath said.
I would raise the dosage.

It was a good run. Guy was jumping out of airplanes well into his 70s.
He was 85 last time actually.

I don't think his ticket is going to be punched just yet. Media is blowing this one up more than it is because it's Christmas week.

Yeah, besides, we already have had a president die in this week of the year, Gerald Ford died 12/26/2006. HW will want his own death week.

Local news reports family summoned to hospital. That's never good.

None of us get out of this thing alive.
