    I'm pretty sure that was his 80th birthday so probably 8 years ago.

    Yeah, when you start getting up there in age things don't exactly come back together the way we'd like.

    At his age things can go bad fast with very little provocation. They used to call pneumonia "the old man's friend" because it was the way to a relatively comfortable death for the very old. Sounds like that might be what is going on.

    Elder Bush completes birthday parachute jump

    Former President George H.W. Bush marked his 85th birthday on Friday the same way he did his 75th and 80th birthdays: He leaped from a plane and zoomed downward at more than 100 mph in freefall before parachuting safely to a spot near his oceanfront home.

    Bush spokesman says ex-president's fever rising

    KABB Fox San Antonio :: Newsroom - Local News

    By RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI Associated Press HOUSTON (AP) -- A spokesman says the fever that kept former President George H.W. Bush in a Houston hospital over Christmas has worsened, and doctors have put him on a liquids-only diet.
    Jim McGrath had said earlier Wednesday that the fever had gone away. He later corrected himself and said the fever "elevated" in recent days. McGrath says doctors also put the 88-year-old former president on a liquid diet, though he could not say why.
    McGrath says doctors have been treating the "stubborn" fever with Tylenol but still haven't nailed down a cause.
    Things don't seem to be looking good for former Pres. Bush.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Hopefully they are just being overly cautious. He is the last world caliber President we have had in the country before the reality stars took over.
