Sunday, January 13, 2013

The office of former President George H.W. Bush says he could be out of the hospital soon.

The 88-year-old was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston just before Thanksgiving for a lingering cough related to bronchitis.

He was also treated for a fever.

Saturday night, a spokesperson for Bush says he could be discharged in the upcoming week, but they are still taking everything one day at a time.

Bush, the 41st president, is the country's oldest living former president by a few months.
