George H.W. Bush leaves Houston hospital

HOUSTON—Former President George H.W. Bush has been discharged from a Houston hospital Monday after nearly two months of treatment for illness that began as a bronchitis-related cough.

Bush has been hospitalized since Nov. 23, including a week in intensive care last month.

Spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush, 88, would go to his west Houston home where he will continue physical therapy.

McGrath said the former president watched part of the Texans game against the Patriots Sunday.

He’s had several visits from family members throughout his hospitalization, including former President George W. Bush.

The nation’s oldest living ex-president and his wife, Barbara, spend winters in Houston and summers at their home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
