Former President George H.W. Bush Is Hospitalized for the Second Time in Less Than a Month
One week after returning to his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, former President George H.W. Bush was taken to the hospital on Sunday, where he will likely remain for several days.
“President @GeorgeHWBush was taken to Southern Maine Health Care (@SMHCHealth) today after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue,” spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement shared on social media.
Continuing, he wrote that Bush “will likely remain there for a few days for observation,” adding that “the former president is awake and alert, and not in any discomfort.”
Despite his hospitalization earlier this month, McGrath told People less than two weeks ago that Bush was “doing great.”
“Finally had the chance yesterday to catch some new friends in action @HamiltonMusical,” Bush wrote on Twitter, adding that he was “properly attired in Hamilton socks” while being “surrounded by family and friends.”
“Not a big hashtag man, but congratulations #HamFam!!” he added after praising the production’s “epic story and performance.”
McGrath previously told People that before the former first lady died, she and her husband had been looking forward to seeing the show together.
