    Bush spokesman says ex-president's fever rising
    December 26, 2012 13:55 CST

    By RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI Associated Press

    HOUSTON (AP) -- A spokesman says the fever that kept former President George H.W. Bush in a Houston hospital over Christmas has worsened, and doctors have put him on a liquids-only diet.

    Jim McGrath had said earlier Wednesday that the fever had gone away. He later corrected himself and said the fever "elevated" in recent days. McGrath says doctors also put the 88-year-old former president on a liquid diet, though he could not say why.

    McGrath says doctors have been treating the "stubborn" fever with Tylenol but still haven't nailed down a cause.

    He says the bronchitis-like cough that initially brought Bush to the hospital on Nov. 23 has improved and the 41st president now coughs only about once a day.
    Bush's daughter, Dorothy, is to arrive Wednesday in Houston from Bethesda, Md.

    I wish their family the best. At 88-years-old a trip to the hospital is never good. You can say what you want about the Bushes, but keep in mind they too have family members who care about them.
