As OK! previously reported, the 42nd U.S. president's brother, Roger Clinton, admitted he has been too busy with work to visit his older brother in the hospital, but assured the public that he was going to be "just fine."

"He’s going to be okay, he’s going to be just fine," he exclusively told The Sun. "I haven’t been to see him in the hospital because I’ve got too much work to do, but he's going to be okay."

Meanwhile, NBC News medical correspondent Dr. John Torres, claimed this infection was extremely common in older patients, but was not something to take lightly.

"This is something we frequently treat in the emergency room, where somebody comes in with a urinary tract infection," the doctor commented on Friday. "Especially as they get older, their body is not able to contain that, so it moves from the urinary tract, from the bladder and the kidneys, into the bloodstream."
