Former President George H.W. Bush remains in a Houston hospital, where he has been for seven days as doctors battle a lingering cough that has drawn concern, officials said Thursday.
The Houston Chronicle reports the 88-year-old Bush has bronchitis, but his condition is not considered life threatening.
“President Bush is in the hospital,” Chief of Staff Jean Becker said. “We have kept this quiet out of respect for him.”
Bush has been in and out of Methodist Hospital for a few weeks, and was most recently admitted the day after Thanksgiving, she said.
He was visited there Sunday by his son, former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura.
