George Bush Sr.

Condition Worsens

Moved to ICU

1226-george-hw-bush-getty
The condition of former President George H.W. Bush appears to be deteriorating ... he's been in intensive care since Sunday, and his people are hedging on his prospects for recovery, saying they're "cautiously optimistic."

88-year-old Bush was hospitalized in November due to a bronchitis-like cough, and has remained hospitalized since.

Bush suffers from a condition called vascular Parkinsonism, which Bush has described as a kind of leg paralysis where "you tell your legs to move, and they don't move."  It's unclear if the condition is related to his current hospitalization.

Bush's fever has gone up in the last few days, and doctors have been unable to control it.

Keepin' it Real    

If TMZ is going to continue to carry updates to this developing story they really need to dedicate a staff member to monitor the comments. This is too important of a story to let the comments be hijacked by juveniles and simply heartless dullards. Very unamerican and unpatriotic.

Mr.Bfett, get help. Its not normal to hope anybody dies. Its cool not to like people, thats fine and your right to even hate people. But wishing death is a whole new level that is not acceptable most of the time.

Sir, I hope you regain your strength back soon. My dad who is your age was in the same situation a few months ago and he enjoyed his Christmas Dinner last night and the love of family. Thank you for your years at the White House, CIA, and public service. I know it wasn't easy. Enjoy your family and the love they are showing you right now and everything will be ok. All will be ok.

People are still praying? That's such a dated practice, my religion has already developed a much more efficient form of wishing things would happen.

Can't believe all of the hateful comments. Karma is a BITCH, and all of you haters will find that out the hard way. When President Obama is old and sick, there are some of us (who did not vote for him) who will wish him nothing but good health. Shame on you haters!

The Bush family has run the US for a long time, with a few little bumps along the way. And there's more to come too. Let's have a look shall we? Head of the CIA, 8 years VP, 4 years Pres., Son is Pres for 8 years. Possible other son becoming Pres. Then there was Prescot in the beginning. But credit to the Prez for his WWII service.

He is a father and a grandfather, so I hope he improves. He's also just a few years older than my dad, and I dread the day I have to worry about health issues that my dad might suffer like this.
