 George W. Bush has knee surgery

George W. Bush underwent knee replacement surgery in Chicago this weekend, a spokesman for the former president has confirmed.

“He underwent a successful partial knee replacement on Saturday in Chicago,” Bush communications director Freddy Ford told POLITICO in an email. “It was an outpatient procedure and he was able to walk up and down a flight of stairs just a couple hours after the surgery. He came back to Dallas yesterday where he is recovering quickly at home.”

NBC Chicago first reported that the former president had outpatient surgery at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago on Saturday.

According to that report, Bush stayed at the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago after the surgery, where doctors reportedly visited him. He was in Chicago with his wife, former first lady Laura Bush, and with Secret Service officials.

During his presidency, Bush had a torn meniscus in his right knee, which doctors called a typical case of “runner’s knee.” It was not immediately clear which knee was operated on over the weekend.

Wonder if, when he recovers, he'll get off the bike and start running again.  ^-^
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
