George H.W. Bush is still being treated for bronchitis at Methodist Hospital, negating doctors' predictions that he was to be released last weekend, the Associated Press reports. "There is no timeline at the moment for his release," according to the report.
Methodist spokesman George Kovacik told the AP, "They're not in any hurry, so they're just keeping him here, but there's really no change in his condition. He's stable and he's still here."
However, Bush's spokesman said his condition has improved recently and that he's been receiving visitors. We'll update accordingly.
