HOUSTON — The condition of former President George H.W. Bush remains stable at a Houston hospital, where he is being treated for a bronchitis-related cough.

Bush has been in the Methodist Hospital for almost three weeks. Spokesman George Kovacik said Wednesday that the ex-president’s condition has not changed. No additional information was provided.

The 88-year-old Bush also spent about week in the hospital in early November for the same ailment, described by doctors as non-life threatening.

Bush and his wife, Barbara, split their time between residences in Houston and Kennebunkport, Maine.
