Former President George H.W. Bush is recovering at a Texas hospital after contracting an infection that spread to his blood, his spokesman said in a statement he posted on Twitter late Monday.



Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital Sunday morning, the day after attending the funeral of his wife of 73 years, Barbara; the former first lady was laid to rest Saturday in a ceremony attended by her husband and former presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, George W. Bush and their spouses, along with current first lady Melania Trump.
