President George H.W. Bush is Hospitalized

HOUSTON (AP) _ Former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized in
Houston for treatment of a lingering cough.

Methodist Hospital issued a statement Thursday saying the 88-year-old Bush has
been in and out of the hospital recently for complications resulting from
bronchitis.

The hospital says Bush is in stable condition and is expected to be released
within 72 hours.

Bush’s chief of staff, Jean Becker, told the Houston Chronicle the illness was
not life-threatening but there had been concerns it could have developed into
pneumonia.

Becker’s office referred questions from The Associated Press to Bush’s
spokesman, who did not immediately respond to phone messages.

Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush, has been among his visitors.
