Former President George H.W. Bush is in a Houston hospital where doctors have been treating him for bronchitis and a lingering cough. Bush has been hospitalized for a week, but Methodist Hospital opted to keep it quiet “out of respect for him.”
President George HW Bush is in the hospital with bronchitis. He’s been there since the day after Thanksgiving.

His spox says Bush has been at the hospital for six days, and has been cured of his bronchitis but is still there- “lingering cough.”
