Former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized in Southern California this week over a non-COVID-related blood infection known as sepsis.
Perhaps surprisingly to some, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been spotted coming and going from the hospital in Irvine where her husband has been admitted, Fox News reported.
It remains a shock to some Americans that, given the disrespectful manner in which the former president has treated the sanctity of marriage, the former first lady appears to have remained committed to their union.
It had first been announced Thursday by the former president’s spokesman, Angel Urena, that Bill Clinton had been admitted Tuesday to the University of California-Irvine Medical Center to receive treatment for the not uncommon infection.
In an update Friday evening, Urena said, “President Clinton is continuing to receive treatment for an infection at UC Irvine Medical Center. All health indicators are trending in the right direction, including his white blood count which has decreased significantly. In order to receive further IV antibiotics, he will remain in the hospital overnight.”
The spokesman added that Clinton was in “excellent spirits” and was “deeply grateful” for the care he had received at the hospital as well as the outpouring of support and well-wishes that came from people all around the globe.

Hillary pays a visit
Fox News cited reports that Hillary Clinton, flanked by longtime aide Huma Abedin, was spotted leaving the hospital late Thursday night after paying her husband a visit.
The former secretary had not been in California when the former president was first hospitalized on Tuesday but reportedly flew out as soon as she could, both to be by his side as well as to pull double-duty for both him and herself at a Clinton Foundation event Thursday that she attended before visiting the hospital.
The report indicated that she had arrived and left with a motorcade of vehicles that included law enforcement and that she appeared to have been in “good spirits” as she left the hospital.
According to NBC News, the former president also received a call of support from the current president, Joe Biden, who let reporters know Friday that he had called his fellow Democratic friend to “see how he was doing.”
“He’s doing fine. He really is,” Biden told reporters. “He’s not in any serious condition. He is getting out shortly, as I understand.”
