Bush, and his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, arrive for the premiere of HBO's new documentary on his life near the family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said Wednesday, Dec. 26. 2012 that doctors at the Houston hospital where Bush has been treated for a month remain “cautiously optimistic” that he will recover. Still, no discharge date has been set, and McGrath says that doctors are being cautious because at Bush’s age “sometimes issues crop up that are beyond anybody’s ability to discern or foretell.”(AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File) (The Associated Press)

The Bush family is keeping quiet on former President George H.W. Bush's condition.

The 88-year-old former president has been hospitalized since Nov. 23, first for a bronchitis-related cough and more recently with a lingering fever.

A spokesman for the former president said Thursday that only changes in Bush's condition would prompt updates about his health.

Bush's spokesman and a hospital spokesman did not immediately respond to messages left by The Associated Press on Friday morning.

The most recent word from the former president came Thursday evening when he released a statement mourning the death of retired Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf. Schwarzkopf led the Bush-assembled international military coalition that in 1991 routed Iraqi forces who invaded Kuwait.
