President Bush '41' on the Rebound

Pres Bush 41 and his Houston Rockets both rebound nicely.

President George H.W. Bush is a fighter. We all knew that.

Yet when word of his being checked into a hospital and in I.C.U. just a day after his wife’s funeral spread throughout the internet, I believe people silently expected the worse.


Well, you can’t keep a fighter pilot down for long. Especially one that jumps out of airplanes for his birthday well into his EIGHTIES.

According to Us Magazine President Bush is on the mend.

That’s the spirit! George H. W. Bush’s health has improved so much since he was admitted to the ICU on Sunday, April 22, that his only concern now is the NBA playoffs.

A statement shared by the former president’s office on Wednesday, April 25, began, “President George H. W. Bush has been moved from the intensive care unit at Houston Methodist Hospital to a regular patient room, and is expected to continue his recovery there for several more days.”

“He is alert and talking with hospital staff, family and friends, and his doctors are very pleased with his progress,” the statement continued. “President Bush naturally thanks everyone for their prayers and good wishes.”

The press release ended with an assurance that the 41st president is “more focused on the Houston Rockets closing out their playoff series against the Minnesota Timberwolves” than his health.


This is welcome news for the Bush family and all Americans. Our 41st President is on the mend after the loss of his wife and this reminds us that on occasion, we do have people in public life we can look up to and should.

God Speed Mr. President and for this one and only time…
