President George H.W. Bush's recovery from a bronchitis-related cough and subsequent complications is "continuing" and there's still no timetable for his release from a Houston hospital, a Bush family spokesman said Monday.

Bush, 88, the nation's oldest living ex-president, has been in Methodist Hospital since Nov. 23.

"President Bush's recovery is continuing," spokesman Jim McGrath said in a brief statement, the first word about Bush's condition since Dec. 30. "In recent days he has taken great pride watching big football wins by Texas A&M and the Houston Texans."
