Here’s a lesson for us all. Certainly good healthcare, prayers and his wife’s constant attention helped former President George H.W. Bush get through a 12-day bout with pneumonia at Houston Methodist Hospital.
The Washington Examiner reports,
But in the end, a little bit of singing helped spring the 41st president back to his Houston home.
His spokesman told Secrets that as Bush recovered last week, he had a different attending doctor, internist Dr. Amy Mynderse. Her name stuck in Bush’s mind.
And on the day he felt good enough to leave, Jan. 30, when she came for a final visit, the president began serenading her with Frank Sinatra’s “Once in Love with Amy.”
Even former first lady Barbara Bush, who also checked in for a brief hospital visit, joined in and they sang the tune together:
Once in love with Amy
Always in love with Amy
Ever and ever fascinated by her
Sets your heart afire to stay
