HOUSTON (CNN) -- Former President George H.W. Bush remains in a Houston hospital Thursday after being treated for bronchitis, his spokesman said.
Bush, 88, has been hospitalized at Houston's Methodist Hospital for six days and has a "lingering cough," spokesman Jim McGrath told CNN.
His family hopes he will be discharged by the weekend, McGrath said.
Bush has a form of Parkinson's disease that affects his legs and requires him to use a wheelchair.
He is the oldest living former president and a World War II veteran.
He was previously hospitalized overnight in 2007 after a fainting spell caused by dehydration and hot weather while golfing in California.
Frigid temperatures force homeowners in Southeastern Oklahoma to seek shelter.
If your parking lot is big enough, today was a day when a shovel might not do the trick.
A lot of the snow has been cleared from the main roads and highways, but there's still a lot of slush and that means re-freezing is a big concern.
