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.

CNN is reporting that the 93-year-old is in "intensive care" and that the infection with which he was admitted to the hospital "led to sepsis, which can be life-threatening."
