HOUSTON (AP) -- Former President George H.W. Bush remains in intensive care in a Houston hospital recovering from a fever that arose after a long battle with bronchitis.

Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Saturday he would release a statement if there was anything to report, but wasn t sure there would be.

McGrath said Friday that the 88-year-old Bush s condition continued to improve since moving into intensive care at Methodist Hospital on Sunday. Later Friday, McGrath said that updates on the president would come on an as-warranted basis.

Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough.

Bush, the 41st president, is the country s oldest living former president by a few months.
