Houston: After spending more than a month in a hospital here, former US President George H.W. Bush may be discharged on Monday.

"We are hopeful that he can be discharged this coming week, but we're still taking everything one day at a time," Bush's spokesman Jim McGrath said.

The statement came after 88-year-old Bush's son and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said on Saturday that his father was expected to be released Monday, CNN quoted TCPalm.Com.

The 41st president (1989-93) was hospitalised on November 23 for bronchitis and remained there while doctors monitored a lingering cough. He has also suffered from "a stubborn fever," McGrath said last week.

While in the hospital, Bush, has cheered on the Texas A&M and the Houston Texans football teams to victories and enjoyed a special performance by the Oak Ridge Boys via telephone. His exchanges with doctors and nurses have included singing, McGrath said.
