Bush may be released from hospital soon

Jan. 13, 2013 at 9:32 AM   |   Comments

HOUSTON, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Former President George H.W. Bush may be heading home this week after spending more than a month in a Houston hospital, his spokesman said.

"We are hopeful that he can be discharged this coming week, but we're still taking everything one day at a time," spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement released Saturday night.

McGrath's statement came after Bush's son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, said his father was expected to be released from the hospital on Monday, TCPalm.com reported.

Bush, 88, was first admitted to the hospital on Nov. 23 for bronchitis and remained there so doctors could monitor a lingering cough, CNN said.
