George H. W. Bush Rushed To Hospital

Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized Sunday after suffering from low blood pressure and fatigue.

“President @GeorgeHWBush was taken to Southern Maine Health Care (@SMHCHealth) today after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue,” tweeted Bush spokesman Jim McGrath.

“He will likely remain there for a few days for observation. The former president is awake and alert, and not in any discomfort,” McGrath reported.

His hospitalization came one day after Bush attended an American Legion event in honor of America’s approaching Memorial Day holiday, Reuters reported.


“Delighted to join the veterans, including my dear friend Gen. Brent Scowcroft, at the @AmericanLegion Post 159 monthly pancake breakfast in Kennebunkport today,” Bush posted on his official Twitter account. “This weekend we remember, and thank, all who have given their lives for our great country.”

Bush, who was America’s 41st president, arrived in Maine on May 20, according to CNN, about one month after the funeral of his wife, Barbara Bush.

The former president, who usually spends summers in Kennebunkport, Maine, was released from a Houston hospital on May 4. He had been hospitalized there after suffering an infection that spread. His hospitalization in Texas began the day after his wife’s funeral. The couple had been married for 73 years.
