HOUSTON (AP) – A spokesman for former President George H.W. Bush says Bush’s recovery from a bronchitis-related cough and subsequent complications is “continuing” and there’s still no timetable for his release from a Houston hospital.
The 88-year-old Bush has been in Methodist Hospital in Houston since Nov. 23.
The brief statement released Monday by spokesman Jim McGrath is the first word about the former president’s condition since Dec. 30, when a statement was issued saying Bush had been moved out of intensive care.
Monday’s statement also says Bush has taken great pride in watching football victories last weekend by Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl and the Houston Texans in the NFL playoffs.
