George H.W. Bush Released From Hospital

Former President George H.W. Bush was released from the hospital Tuesday, family spokesman Jim McGrath announced.

Bush was rushed to Houston's Methodist Hospital on Dec. 23 after experiencing shortness of breath. The 90-year-old remained hospitalized for a week as a precaution.

"Both President and Mrs. Bush wish to thank everyone for their good wishes and prayers," McGrath said in a Monday statement.

Starting in Nov. 2012, Bush was hospitalized for nearly two months due to a persistent bronchitis-related cough. He was released in Jan. 2013.
