This is incredibly sad!
Last night, former President George H.W. Bush was taken by ambulance to Houston Methodist Hospital after experiencing a shortness of breath.
According to spokesman Jim McGrath, George W. Bush's father:

A man was apparently digging through his medicine cabinet and found one of his ex-girlfriend's old pregnancy tests.
For no reason at all, most likely curiosity and boredom, he peed on the test.
And it came back positive! He was pregnant!
Well he wasn't pregnant, but he thought it was funny enough to share his results with reddit via a comic.
When redditors saw the comic they immediately began commenting things like:
"You may have testicular cancer! Get to an oncologist, tell them you took a pregnancy test and it came out positive."
"If this is true, you should check yourself for testicular cancer. Seriously. Google it."
So he set up an appointment with an oncologist… and reddit was right!
He had a small tumor in his right testicle!
Thankfully he caught it early and it can be treated, though he may lose the testicle.
We're just glad that doing a random thing and posting a funny story on the internet lead to him getting some life saving advice!
