At 90 years old, George Bush Sr. has seen his share of adversity.
Last summer, he suffered a fall in Maine, where he sustained a broken neck bone.
Not one to let bad news get him down, Bush Sr. tweeted out a recovery photo shortly after his fall:

Two years before that, he had heart surgery for a blocked artery:
And when he was diagnosed with vascular Parkinsonism in 2012, which took away his ability to walk, he said:
“I love being active, (playing) sports, being in the game. But you just face the reality and make the best of it.”
Bush Sr. may be wheelchair-bound, but he still tries to get out and do what he loves.
One of those things is baseball.
He even took the field at Minute Maid Park on Thursday to throw the opening pitch.

Bush Sr. will be 91 in June. And we hope he’s able to throw many more opening pitches.
