The special relationship between George HW and Barbara Bush

Good news: Former first lady Barbara Bush has been transfered out of ICU today and into a private room, two days after having heart surgery to replace her aortic valve.

The video below is from a news segment NBC’s Today Show did on Mr. and Mrs. Bush’s special relationship. It includes old and new footage, the most recent being the former President’s emotional moment where he talked about being a “nervous wreck” over worrying about his wife’s health.

I wish them both well, and Mrs. Bush a speedy recovery.
