Former President George H. W. Bush In Hospital's ICU

Posted: Updated:

Former President George H. W. Bush remains in an intensive care unit at a Texas hospital.

The 88-year-old former president has been in the hospital since Nov. 23. Doctors say he had bronchitis, but now he's battling a fever.

He has also been placed on a liquid diet.

A spokesman says doctors are cautiously optimistic, but that the Bush family is remaining realistic about the situation.

Bush served as the nation's 41st president, from 1989 to 1993. He was also a naval aviator during World War II.

In 2007, the former president served as the chairman of the board of trustees at the National Constitution Center here in Philadelphia.
