Former President George H.W. Bush remains hospitalized in Houston recovering from an illness that began with a bronchitis-related cough.

There was no update on his condition Sunday, but a family spokesman said Saturday that the 88-year-old had been moved back to a regular room at Methodist Hospital. Bush had spent a week in intensive care in order to knock down a fever.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said Saturday that Bush continued to improve and he and his family thanked everyone for their prayers and good wishes.

Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 and moved to the intensive care unit Dec. 23 after developing a fever.

Bush, the 41st president, is the country's oldest living former president by a few months.
