“He is now resting at home, grateful to the doctors and nurses for their superb care”

Former President George H.W. Bush was released from Houston Methodist Hospital Tuesday, a week after he was checked in as a precautionary measure due to shortness of breath.

“He is now resting at home, grateful to the doctors and nurses for their superb care,” a Bush spokesperson said in a statement.

Doctor’s said that the 90-year-old, who celebrated his recent birthday milestone by skydiving, returned to normal breathing on Monday.
