Reports have it that the 75-year-old was first diagnosed with a urinary tract infection. However, doctors were shocked to discovered that it already developed into sepsis, which a fatal condition where infection spreads to the bloodstreams and can end in cardiac arrest.
Now, there are claims that Bill Clinton was on brink of death after the alarming sepsis ordeal. Keep on reading to know more details.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton Almost Died?
Globe, in its upcoming Nov. 8, 2021 issue, reported that Bill Clinton is very fortunate to have survive a near-death situation during his most-recent hospitalization. The tabloid claimed that doctors tried to downplay the severity of Clinton’s disease and, allegedly, insisted the former politician should only be treated in the hospital’s intensive care unit due to concern for his safety and privacy.
An expert told Globe that Bill Clinton could have died very quickly due to his advanced age. Dr. Robert Lahita stated:
“In someone his age you can die very quickly from sepsis. [He could have been] sicker than they let on.”
Lahita furthered Bill Clinton could have passed through three stages within an hour: from fever and chills, to nausea and rapid heart rate, and septic shock.
Another expert believes that Clinton was close to the end because sepsis could trigger stroke, heart attack or immediate death. Dr. Stuart Fischer told Globe:
“This is a major medical emergency and the close is ticking for anyone who has it.”
The publication claimed Bill Clinton looked “frail and unsteady” after spending days in the hospital. It added that the ex-governor of Arkansas, who was spotted clinging to the arms of wife Hillary Clinton, looked so disoriented as he “shuffled his feet while walking.”
An unnamed source claimed Clinton “looked absolutely horrendous, like he’d been to hell and back.” Another unidentified tipster said the former president is “still at death’s door. With all lingering health issues, he’s not out of the woods.”
A third informant told Globe:
“I’d not be surprised the Maxwell case in some way contributed to his hospitalization. He’s much weaker than he was and has appeared frail in recent years.”
The Clintons’ War on Women author Robert Morrow claimed that Bill Clinton is living on borrowed time. He said:
“It’s a miracle he’s alive because he’s abused his body his whole life with dope, bad food, lack of sleep and rampant promiscuity. The only reason he’s still alive is that he’s a former president of the United States who is give the world’s best medical care.”
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and his family have yet to comment on these claims. So, devoted supporters of the ex-politician should take all these unverified reports with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
Bill Clinton Is Back Home After Hospitalization
Meanwhile, Bill Clinton arrived at his home in New York on Oct. 14 to continue recovering from the said infection unrelated to COVID-19, which left him in treatment for six days. The former president of the United States was seen leaving the Southern California hospital donning a sports coat, jeans and a face mask with his wife, Hillary, on his arm.
Clinton was also seen shaking hands with doctors and nurses lined up on the sidewalk. AP News reported that he even gave one reporter a thumbs-up when asked about how he was felling at that very moment.
The former first couple, then, boarded a black SUV and exited the hospital premises in a motorcade with the California Highway Patrol as they headed to the airport.
Dr. Alpesh N. Amin revealed, in a statement shared on Twitter, that the fever and white blood cell count of Bill Clinton had normalized. He added that the former politician returned home to New York to finish his antibiotics.
