President George H.W. Bush released from hospital

(CNN)Former President George H.W. Bush has been released from a Houston hospital, his spokesman said Friday. The 41st president, at age 92, had been recovering from a mild case of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis. "President and Mrs. Bush are very pleased to be home spending time with family and friends and are grateful for the outstanding care provided by his doctors and nurse," spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement. Bush returned to the hospital earlier this month prior to Easter due to a cough that prevented him from sleeping.
