    Former president George H.W. Bush has been released from the hospital, his spokesman says.

    Spokesman Jim McGrath says Bush was discharged Monday morning from Houston Methodist Hospital after being treated for pneumonia.

    McGrath says Bush is thankful for the prayers and kind messages he received during his stay.

    The nation's 41st president was admitted to the hospital on Jan. 14 for breathing difficulties. He later was moved to intensive care when doctors inserted a breathing tube.
