HOUSTON (www.incnow.tv) - Former President George H. W. Bush remains hospitalized in intensive care at Methodist Hospital in Houston.

Mr. Bush, 88, checked into the hospital with a bronchitis on Nov. 23. In the weeks since, the former president has developed an "elevated fever," according to a Bush family spokesman.

Doctors have not discovered the cause of Mr. Bush's illness, but are treating him with a liquid diet and Tylenol. Relatives visited him over Christmas Day.

Mr. Bush, 88, is the oldest living former president. He held the office for one term from 1989 to 1993.
