Senior Bush in intensive care

Houston, Dec. 27 (AP): Former President George H.W. Bush remained in guarded condition overnight in the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital after a day marked by “a series of setbacks including persistent fever”, according to his spokesman.

In a brief email yesterday, Jim McGrath, Bush’s spokesman in Houston, said the 88-year-old former leader had been admitted on Sunday to Methodist Hospital. McGrath said Bush, the oldest living former US President, was alert and talking to medical staff, adding that doctors are cautiously optimistic about his treatment.

No other details were released about his medical condition, but McGrath said Bush is surrounded by family. Bush has been hospitalised since November 23, when he was admitted for a lingering cough related to bronchitis.
