Erstwhile U.S. President George H.W. Bush, 93, was hospitalised in Maine on Sunday after he experienced low blood pressure and tiredness, a family spokesperson tweeted.
Bush, the oldest living previous president of USA, will probably stay at Southern Maine Health Care for a few days for observation, said the spokesperson, Jim McGrath.
“The former president is awake and alert, and not in any discomfort, “ McGrath tweeted.
Bush was in the hospital in Texas last month for treatment of an infection that spread to his blood and remained there for about two weeks. He was admitted to the hospital a day after he attended the funeral of his wife, Barbara, the erstwhile first lady who passed away on April 17. The couple had been married for seventy-three years.
On Saturday, Bush attended an American Legion event in Kennebunkport, Maine to mark the upcoming Memorial Day with military veterans and his erstwhile national security advisor Brent Scowcroft, as per a post on Bush’s official Twitter feed.
Bush is the father of erstwhile Republican President George W. Bush, who served two terms from 2001 to 2009, and erstwhile Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who was unsuccessful in seeking the votes for the 2016 Republican Presidential Nomination.
