President George H.W. Bush seems to be on the mend after spending a few days in the ICU.
President Bush was admitted to the hospital just hours after laying his wife former First Lady Barbara Bush to rest after 73 years of marriage. At the time it was reported that the President was battling an infection that had spread to his blood.
Now, according to Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath, he’s been moved to a regular hospital room and very concerned about the Houston Rockets in the NBA playoffs, “President George H.W. Bush has moved from the intensive care at Houston Methodist Hospital to a regular patient room and is expected to continue his recovery there… as good as he feels now, he is more focused on the Houston Rockets closing out their playoff series against the Minnesota Timberwolves than anything that landed him in the hospital.”

Earlier, President Bush thanked the city of Houston for their support over the last week.
My family and I thank Mayor @SylvesterTurner, his terrific staff, @houstonpolice, @METROHouston, @SBCHouston, @StMartinsDOK — and really all Houstonians — for your professionalism and obvious care in making Barbara's visitors and funeral guests feel so welcomed. Thank you all.
