George H.W. Bush Released From Hospital and 'Doing Well'

Former President George H.W. Bush has been released from the hospital and is "doing well," according to a representative.

Jim McGrath, Bush's spokesman, tweeted Friday evening that the president was released from Methodist Hospital in Houston after receiving treatment for an infection.

"His doctors report he is doing well and is happy to return home," McGrath said.

Bush, 93, was checked into Houston Methodist Hospital on April 22 — one day after his wife Barbara's funeral — for a urinary tract infection that turned into septic shock, KTRK reported.

Barbara Bush, 92, died April 17, days after the family announced that she would not "seek additional medical treatment" after recent hospitalizations.

Bush was reportedly in the intensive care unit after his wife’s death.

Despite the recent health setbacks, the former president is still planning to travel to his family’s home Maine this summer, McGrath told ABC News.
