Former president George H.W. Bush was once expected to be released from Methodist Hospital over the weekend, but he remains there in stable condition on Monday.
"He still has the cough, which causes him pain," family spokesman Jim McGrath said. "So as long as he has that he's not anxious to go anywhere."
Bush was admitted to the hospital the Friday after Thanksgiving for fear that a lingering cough associated with bronchitis could turn into pneumonia.
