President George H.W. Bush (the first Bush Presidency) has been moved to intensive care in a Houston hospital. The former President has been in the facility for thirty-four days. Originally he had a bad bronchitis type cough. This past week his fever has turned worse and really spiked the last couple of days and was moved into intensive care on Sunday. His children and extended family have flown in to visit him over the holidays. Former First Lady Barbara Bush has been visiting him twice a day since he has been hospitalized.
The elder Bush has been in declining health over the last months and often was seen in a wheelchair. The former President is 88 years old
