President George Bush Sr. in ICU, Condition worsens

Filed under: International News |

Former President George H.W. Bush of the United State of America, 88, was moved to an intensive care unit at a Houston hospital on Sunday after a stubborn fever persisted and doctors were unable to control it.

The elder Bush has been hospitalized since November, suffering from a bronchitis-like cough. His people, however, are saying they’re “cautiously optimistic” that Bush Sr. will recover.

The 41st president suffers from a condition called vascular Parkinsonism, described by Bush as a paralysis in which “you tell your legs to move, and they don’t move.

” It’s unclear if the condition is related to his current hospitalization.

Bush Sr. memorably parachuted from an airplane on his 85th birthday.
