Former President Bill Clinton admitted to hospital with infection

Former President Bill Clinton was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday for an infection, according to a spokesperson, but is recovering.

"On Tuesday, President Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical Center to receive treatment for a non-COVID-related infection," Angel Ureña, spokesperson for Clinton, said in a statement. "He is on the mend, in good spirits and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care."

He is expected to be released from the hospital soon, according to doctors.

Clinton, 75, served as president from January 1993 to January 2001.

He's had a number of health issues over the past two decades, though most related to heart problems. He had a quadruple bypass surgery in September 2004 and two coronary stents placed in his heart in February 2010. He also underwent surgery for a collapsed lung in 2005.

Clinton's doctors at UCI Medical Center in Orange, California, further elaborated on the former president's health in a statement.

"President Clinton was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center and diagnosed with an infection. He was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids," Drs. Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack said in the statement. "He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring. After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well."

"The California-based medical team has been in constant communication with the President's New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist," the statement continued. "We hope to have him go home soon."

My mother had this twice from a bladder infection. Sepsis does damage to the organs. Or so they told me. She passed away 3 months after her last bout with it.
