Former First Lady Barbara Bush Released from Hospital

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) -- Former first lady Barbara Bush has been discharged from a Houston hospital where she's spent nearly a week for a respiratory-related issue.
 
Bush spokesman Jim McGrath says the wife of former President George H.W. Bush went home just before noon Saturday.

McGrath says doctors at Houston Methodist Hospital made the determination Saturday morning. The 88-year-old Bush family matriarch has been hospitalized since Monday.
 
McGrath says Barbara Bush responded well to medication and "she's great." He had no other immediate details on her condition or future treatment.
 
She and her husband, the 41st president, live in Houston. The nation's longest-married presidential first couple will celebrate their 69th wedding anniversary Monday.
