The fever that kept George H.W. Bush in the hospital on Christmas is gone, the former president's spokesman said Wednesday.

Jim McGrath said doctors at the Houston hospital where the ex-president has been treated for a month remain "cautiously optimistic" that he will recover.

Still, no discharge date has been set, and McGrath said that doctors are being cautious because Bush is 88 and "sometimes issues crop up that are beyond anybody's ability to discern or foretell."

The 41st president was initially hospitalized on Nov. 23 with a bronchitis-like cough. The hospital had said he was likely to be released before Christmas, but then the fever developed.

He was visited over the holiday by his wife, Barbara, sons Neil Bush and former president George W. Bush, and other family members. McGrath said Bush's youngest daughter, Dora, is arriving in Houston on Wednesday.
