Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized and in intensive care at a Houston hospital where he spent Christmas Day after suffering setbacks in his long battle with bronchitis, his spokesman said Wednesday.
Following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever, Bush was admitted to the ICU at Methodist Hospital on Sunday where he remains in guarded condition, Bush family spokesman said.
George H.W. Bush is the oldest living former president and a World War II veteran.
Bush has been hospitalized since Nov. 23 when he was admitted for a lingering cough related to bronchitis after having been in and out of the hospital for complications related to the illness.
Bush was expected to stay in the hospital only for few days yet, the persistent fever kept him during and over Christmas. Mr. Bush was visited by his wife, Barbara, his son Neil and other family members on Christmas Day.
No further details were released about his medical condition.
