Former president George H. W. Bush is still in the hospital following complications with Bronchitis.
As we previously reported, Bush was admitted to the hospital at the end of November. At the time he was reported as “stable” and said to be released in 72 hours.
Nearly one month later, Huffington Post reports that the 88-year-old former president remains in the hospital but is still expected to make a full recovery. Doctors state that Bush must “build up his energy” before he can be released.
Bush has been working with a physical therapist in order to help him with his strength. Despite concerns that doctors are being “extra cautious,” he is expected to make a full recovery.
A spokesperson for Bush has stated that a release date has not yet been set and it is unclear if he will be able to return home in time for the Christmas holiday.
George Kovacik, a spokesperson for Methodist Hospital, where the 41st president is being treated, said that Bush’s release date could be decided on Monday, Dec. 24.
