Just days after burying his wife Barbara, who died at age 92, former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalised after an infection he contracted spread to his blood.

Jim McGrath said on Twitter that the 93-year-old Bush is "responding to treatments and appears to be recovering".

Bush, 93, was in a critical condition after an infection that led to sepsis, a source close to Bush told CNN.

Barbara Bush's longtime friend, Susan Baker, the wife of former Secretary of State James Baker, described her in a eulogy at her funeral on Saturday as a "tough but loving enforcer" whose 73-year marriage to her husband was a real-life fairy tale. For about a week in December 2014, he spent time in the hospital for shortness of breath. He adds that "the stress of losing a loved one can weaken the immune system".
