Former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized for over a month, but there are indications he may finally be able to head home soon. CNN reported the available details Jan. 13, and the family indicated a return home may come as early as Monday.
President George H.W. Bush has been in the hospital since Nov. 23 due to bronchitis and a lingering cough. Last week he also had a fever that was difficult to control, but spokesman Jim McGrath said that everyone is hopeful he can be discharged soon. Bush, 88, is said to have been in good spirits throughout his time in the hospital.
According to TC Palm, Jeb Bush, the son of the former president, was at an event this weekend and said they believe President George H.W. Bush will be released from the hospital Monday. He even joked that his father won't be as pampered at home with First Lady Barbara Bush in charge.
Fans of the former president hope that he is fully recovering and hope he is able to return home this week as his medical team expects. The team notes, however, that things are being taken one day at a time, and of course President George H.W. Bush won't be headed home if there is any doubt he is healthy enough to leave the hospital. It's clearly been a long road to recovery from these latest issues, but hopefully he is truly on the mend now.
