Bush Out of ICU, Doctors Pleased
A family spokesman says former President George H.W. Bush is out of intensive care after being hospitalized a day after his wife's funeral.
Spokesman Jim McGrath said Wednesday that the 93-year-old former president has been moved to a regular patient room and is expected to remain at Houston Methodist Hospital for "several more days."
Bush is being treated for an infection that spread to his blood.
McGrath says Bush is as "alert and talking with hospital staff, family and friends," and that doctors are "very pleased with his progress."
The nation's 41st president has been hospitalized since Sunday, a day after the funeral for Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years.
McGrath says Bush is thankful for prayers and good wishes. He says the former president is more focused on the Houston Rockets playoff series against the Minnesota Timberwolves "than anything that landed him in the hospital."
