Reuters reported that the 88 year-old Bush has been in the hospital with bronchitis since November 23rd.
A family spokesman told Reuters that “Following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever, President Bush was admitted to the intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital on Sunday where he remains in guarded condition. Doctors at Methodist continue to be cautiously optimistic about the current course of treatment.”
The spokesman also told Reuters that Bush has lower-body parkinsonism, which causes a loss of balance, and has used wheelchairs for more than a year.
Bush, Republican, was President for one term, following Ronald Reagan in 1989 through 1992. He was also Vice President for two terms, from 1981 through 1988.
