Ex-President Bush remains hospitalized, stable

HOUSTON (AP) -- Former President George H.W. Bush remains in stable condition in his third week of hospitalization in Houston for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough.

Methodist Hospital spokesman George Kovacik (koh-VAH'-chik) said Sunday there was no change in the 88-year-old Bush's condition. Doctors have said over the past several days that the 41st president continues to improve but they're in no hurry to release him.

Bush was admitted to the hospital the day after Thanksgiving.

Bush and his wife, Barbara, divide their time, spending winters in Houston and summers in Kennebunkport, Maine.
