Former US president George Herbert Walker Bush (George Bush Snr) is in the Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in Houston.
According to his rep John McGrath, Bush has been in the ICU of the Methodist Hospital since Sunday. Earlier on Wednesday he said that a bad fever had kept the 88-year old former president in the hospital over Christmas. The fever had gotten worse, so he was placed on a liquid-only diet by doctors.
He gave no details on his current condition.
George Bush Snr was initially brought to the hospital on November 23 due to a bronchitis-like cough, but his rep said that the cough has improved.
On Christmas, he was visited by his wife Barbara, his sons George Bush (Jnr), Jeb Bush (former governor of Florida), Neil Bush and wife Maria, as well as his grandson.
