Former President George Bush has been hospitalized in Texas for complications related to bronchitis, and according to a spokesman, his condition is stable.
The spokesman, Jim McGrath, added on Thursday that Mr. Bush, 88 was expected to be released in a few days.
"At age 88, bronchitis can be very serious, but in this case it was never life-threatening," McGrath said in an interview. "If you asked him how he's doing, he would tell you he's getting out this afternoon, because he feels that good. But he does have a lingering cough, so the doctors are going to wait until he's better to their satisfaction before they discharge him."
Since his hospitalization a week ago, Mr. Bush, who has dealt with numerous health issues in recent times -- including a form of Parkinson's disease -- has been surrounded by his family.
