Sad: Mandela, Bush And Thatcher Spend Christmas In Hospital

It’ so sad to hear that three of the world’s most prominent former leaders, George H.W. Bush, Baroness Margaret Thatcher and Nelson Mandela, will spend their christmas on hospital beds.

Baroness Margaret Thatcher, 87-year-old former prime minister of United Kingdom is recovering after being operated on three days ago to remove a growth from her bladder after suffering pain.

South Africa’s Nelson Mandela’s doctors confirmed on Monday that he was not fit to leave hospital in Pretoria.

President George H.W. Bush, who has been in a Houston hospital with a lingering cough since November, needs to “build up his energy” before he can be released, doctors said.

Margaret Thatcher’s public appearances have been very restricted over recent years due to continued ill health.

In October she was sufficiently well, however, to mark her 87th birthday with lunch at a restaurant in London’s exclusive St James’s district with her son Mark and his wife.

Mandela was admitted to hospital on December 8. He was diagnosed with a lung infection and had a procedure to remove gallstones. Officials have said he is improving and is responding to treatment.
