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.
