    President George H.W. Bush celebrates his 88th birthday following the HBO Documentary special screening of "41" on June 12, 2012 in Kennebunkport, Maine.

    The condition of former President George H. W. Bush remains stable at a Houston hospital, where he is being treated for a bronchitis-related cough.

    Bush has been in the Methodist Hospital for almost three weeks. Spokesman George Kovacik said Wednesday that the ex-president's condition has not changed. No additional information was provided.

    The 88-year-old Bush also spent about week in the hospital in early November for the same ailment, described by doctors as non-life threatening.

    Bush and his wife, Barbara, split their time between residences in Houston and Kennebunkport, Maine.
