Former President Bill Clinton is reportedly “on the mend,” after undergoing treatment for a blood infection.
CNN has the following to say:
Former President Clinton resides in New York State. This led to questions about his hospitalization 5,000 miles away from home for a serious blood infection. Clinton, who was visiting California to attend a private function for his foundation’s foundation, complained of fatigue. He was admitted to hospital after undergoing tests.
“He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” according to a joint statement Thursday evening from Dr. Alpesh Amin, chair of medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal primary physician. The doctors stated that Clinton is in ICU to protect his privacy and safety, but not for intensive care.
CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta gave a brief update on the former president’s condition. Gupta looked straight-forward and honest after his beatingdown by Joe Rogan. We are talking about a former Democrat President, not a populist streaming host.
“What they think is going on with the president, the former president now is a blood infection,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta said on-air. “This is an infection that is now being treated with IV antibiotics.”
“Seems to be in good spirits,” Gupta added. “He’ll remain in the hospital for at least another day, and at that point they’re going to reassess, but it is possible… that he could be released from the hospital tomorrow.”
Any condition that is serious for a 75-year-old man can be considered grave. Clinton is blessed to receive the very best medical care.
The former President’s doctors said urologic infections are very common in older people, and they are easily treated, although they can quickly spread to the bloodstream. Clinton will receive intravenous antibiotics for the time being, but he’ll likely switch to oral antibiotics on Friday. The doctors stated that his vital signs are stable.
Clinton, who is 75 years old, underwent quadruple bypass cardiology in 2004. In 2010, Clinton had two stents placed to expand one of his arteries. However, his doctors stress that the reason for his hospitalization wasn’t heart-related or Covid-19 related.
