The seriousness of former President Bill Clinton's hospitalization has been confirmed when his doctor stated Clinton has an infection that is spreading into his bloodstream. According to his doctors, he was check in to UC Irvine Medical Center earlier this week and has been monitored closely ever since. The infection is thought to have first started as a common UTI, but things got serious once it leaked into his bloodstream.
While currently in the intensive care unit Dr. Alpesh Amin, from UC Irvine, and Clinton's personal doctor, Dr. Lisa Bardack have administered antibiotics and fluids through an IV to the former president.
The 75-year-old is keeping on the bright side while being cared for by his medical team who says he's expected to be just fine.
His doctors reported, "After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well. We hope to have him go home soon."
Before falling ill, Clinton appeared at a fundraiser in California looking particularly pale and somewhat tired. Of course, Clinton has a laundry list of serious medical issues including a quadruple bypass heart surgery in 2004 then two stents inserted to open an artery in 2010.
His doctors wanted to reiterate that Clinton's hospitalization has nothing to do with COVID or with his heart condition.
