Barbara Bush has been released from the hospital after nearly a week of treatment for pneumonia.
Former first lady Barbara Bush was discharged from Houston Methodist Hospital on Saturday, a family spokesman said.
“I cannot thank the doctors and nurses at Houston Methodist enough for making sure I got the best treatment and got back to George and our dogs as quickly as possible,” Bush said.
She was released after six days of treatment for pneumonia, a family statement said.
Bush, 88, is the wife of the 41st U.S. president, George H.W. Bush, and the mother of the 43rd, George W. Bush. President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton sent their best wishes to Mrs. Bush for a full recovery.

As The Hill points out, Monday will be the 69th wedding anniversary for the former first lady and George H.W. Bush. Looks like now she’ll be home in time. Best wishes to them.
