Frail Bill Clinton, 75, says ‘I’ll do my best to be around a little longer’ speaking for first time since ‘sepsis’ scare

BILL Clinton has said that he will “do his best to be around a little longer” as he spoke for the first time since a major health scare.

The former president, 75, was discharged from the UC Irvine Health in California on Sunday following an infection that had left him looking frail.

But, today he provided an update on his health, - thanking hospital staff for his care and for the “outpouring of support” he received while he was bed bound.

Posting a video on Twitter, he said: “I’m really glad to be back home. I’m doing great, enjoying this beautiful fall weather.

“I’m on the road to recovery, but I want to remind everyone out there to take the time to listen to your bodies and car for yourselves.

“We all have work to do, and each us has an important role to play in life, and in the immediate future.

“I, for one, am gonna do my best to be around to keep doing the most good I can for a lot longer.”

Clinton had been hospitalized after he reportedly contracted a urological infection that developed into sepsis, a potentially live-threatening reaction.

However, his condition has improved and he never went into septic shock.

He spent a total of five nights in the hospital while receiving IV antibiotics.

Clinton was left vomiting from “sepsis triggered by E.Coli", a report says.

Doctors reportedly told CBS contributor David Angus: "At the first event he started to feel lightheaded, nausea, vomiting, and was brought to a hospital

"At that hospital, he was found to have an infection in his blood, and they did a CAT scan, looked over his body and even his brain. And the infection source was found to be the urine.

"The bacteria that grew out was called E.Coli, and he was put on what we call broad spectrum antibiotics."

'THE COMEBACK KID'

Last Friday, while speaking at the University of Connecticut, President Joe Biden said he had talked with Clinton.

He said: "We’re all thinking about President Clinton today. He’s always been the comeback kid."

On Saturday morning, wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea were spotted leaving the hospital after a visit.

Former President Clinton has faced a number of health scares since leaving the White House.

HEALTH SCARES

In 2004, he underwent quadruple bypass heart surgery after suffering chest pains and shortness of breath.

He returned to hospital the following year with a collapsed lung.

And in 2010 he had a pair of stents fitted in a coronary artery.

The Arkansas-born politician and attorney has switched to a vegan diet in recent years which has seen him lose weight.
