Good news: the American Principles Project’s founder, Princeton Prof. Robert George, who was hospitalized earlier this week is now out of danger.
Bradford Wilson, the executive director of the James Madison Program at Princeton University, also confirmed that George is “out of danger.”
“Although the condition can be life-threatening, we are pleased to report that Professor George now appears to be out of danger, thanks to swift and astute diagnostic work done by the staff of University Medical Center of Princeton before his transfer to Weill Cornell,” Wilson said in a statement posted online. “Although the Superior Mesenteric Artery is a branch of the aorta, the condition is not a form of heart disease. It threatens the digestive organs by impeding blood flow to them. We are grateful for the prayers and good wishes of Professor George’s many friends and admirers here at Princeton and around the nation and world. We look forward to providing additional reports on Professor George’s recovery.”
Jeb Bush tweeted his prayers for Robby:
Please join me in praying for Robert P. George @McCormickProf this evening as he’s been hospitalized in serious condition.
