This past week has been beyond awful for George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States. Saturday was the funeral for Barbara, his wife of 73 years. A day later, Bush was hospitalized with a serious infection.
Wednesday at least marked a day of better news — and perhaps some levity from Bush. According to a statement from his office, Bush was moved from intensive care to a regular room at Houston Methodist Hospital. And as part of that statement, there was this:
“As good as he feels now, he is more focused on the Houston Rockets closing out their playoff series against the Minnesota Timberwolves than anything that landed him in the hospital.”
