President George H.W. Bush, who has been hospitalized at Houston's Methodist Hospital since the day after Thanksgiving, could be released as early as the upcoming week says a family spokesperson.
"We are hopeful that the president can be discharged this coming week, but we're still taking everything one day at a time," spokesman Jim McGrath said.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, said on Saturday that his father was expected to be released from the hospital on Monday, according to TCPalm.com
President Bush was admitted to Methodist originally with viral bronchitis, but the cough lingered and an off and on fever and other complications kept the 88-year old former president from being released sooner.
Last week a statement by McGrath stated: "President Bush's recovery is continuing at The Methodist Hospital, where in recent days he has taken great pride watching big football wins by Texas A&M and the Houston Texans."
