Your prayers have been heard! George H.W. Bush beat pneumonia and he is going to return to his home in Maine. This and much more below. Our former president was in a really bad state, his lungs were constantly attacked by pneumonia. Now he had the best care in the hospital and he returns to his old life.
Less than a month after he spent two weeks in a Texas hospital, former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, have returned to their summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
The couple arrived at their home on Walker’s Point on Monday, a spokesman said.
Except for the years when he was in World War II, the former president has spent every summer in Maine.
On April 14, Bush was hospitalized because of a cough.
“While President Bush has recovered from pneumonia, he continues to deal with the effects of chronic bronchitis, which is a condition more prevalent with age,” Dr. Clint Doerr, a pulmonologist, said in a statement at the time.
“This means his airway has a constant, low-level inflammation that can aggravate the symptoms of pneumonia,” said Doerr, who said doctors would “continue aggressive respiratory treatments to help minimize the effects of chronic bronchitis.
Bush was released from the hospital on April 28.
Shortly before heading to Maine, the former president, who is 92, had lunch with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who tweeted about their time together.

“Had lunch with two of the greatest Americans,” Schwarzenegger tweeted along with a photo of the trio. He had joined the Bushes after his commencement speech at the University of Houston.
“President Bush & Barbara have helped me, mentored me and inspired me to enter public service,” the actor tweeted. “It was fitting — because my message to the graduates at University of Houston was that I’m not a self-made man — I had a lot of help.”

Although Bush has been ailing and was unable to attend the inauguration of President Donald Trump in January, in February he was able to attend the Super Bowl in Houston to participate in the pregame coin toss.
Spread the good news everywhere! I hope that George H.W. Bush will beat pneumonia once and for all, so he could live peaceful and happy days, just like he deserves after a long and turbulent life.
