A spokesman says the fever that kept former President George H.W. Bush in the hospital over Christmas is gone.
Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said today that doctors at the Texas hospital where the ex-president has been treated for a month remain “cautiously optimistic” that he will recover.
Still, no discharge date has been set. McGrath says that doctors are being cautious because Bush is 88 and “sometimes issues crop up that are beyond anybody’s ability to discern or foretell.”
