HOUSTON, Texas (CNN) -

Former President George H W Bush is at Methodist Hospital in Houston after being treated from bronchitis, according to spokesman Jim McGrath.

McGrath said Bush has been at the hospital for six days, and has been cured of his bronchitis but is still in the hospital because of a “lingering cough.”

McGrath said the family hopes that President Bush, 88, will be discharged by the weekend.
