George H.W. Bush hospitalized- Doctors say he is improving

Former President George H. W. Bush is in a Houston hospital with a lingering cough, but his doctor said Thursday that he is improving and should be discharged this weekend.

Bush, 88, has bronchitis, which alternately got better and worse for a week before improving in the last few days, said Dr. Amy Myunderse, the physician in charge of his care at The Methodist Hospital. The condition was never considered life-threatening.
