Good health news could be on the horizon for former President George H.W. Bush.

After more than a month in a Houston hospital Bush's spokesman says hospital workers are hopeful he can be discharged this week.

The 41st president was admitted in late November for bronchitis and stayed for treatment for a lingering cough and fever.

During an event on Saturday, his son and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush told a crowd that he expected his father's release this week.
