George H.W. Bush, 93, reportedly was "broken-hearted" over the lack of his "beloved Barbara" and was mentioned to have held her hand all day. It happened a day after attending the funeral of his late wife Barbara.
When asked about his recovery, McGrath said, "The 41st President wants to go to ME this summer".
Sources close to the family say the 93 year old is now in critical condition and things were looking pretty grave initially. Infections that spread to the blood usually are not viral, however, he said.
Barbara died Tuesday, shortly after her family announced she was in failing health and would decline further medical treatment in favor of "comfort care". "We will issue additional updates as events warrant", spokesman Jim McGrath said Monday in a statement.
"He's the most goal-oriented person on this planet", McGrath said.
After her death, Bush said of her: "We have faith she is in heaven and we know that life will go on, as she would have it". His recent stay was in April 2017 when he spent two weeks for pneumonia and chronic bronchitis.
After the funeral this week, Mr Bush joined his son for a photo with Hillary and former president Bill Clinton, former president Barack Obama and wife Michelle, and first lady Melania Trump.
On the eve of George Bush Sr., buried his wife.
George Herbert Walker Bush was born June 12, 1924 in Milton, Massachusetts to a wealthy New England political dynasty, the son of Prescott Bush, a successful banker and US Senator for CT.
