Former President George H.W. Bush moved from ICU to regular patient room

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Former President George H.W. Bush was moved from the Intensive Care Unit on Saturday.

The move is a step in the right direction after Bush's month long stay at The Methodist Hospital. Jim McGarth was quoted by CNN saying, "President Bush's condition has improved, so he has been moved today from the intensive care unit to a regular patient room at The Methodist Hospital to continue his recovery."

The 41st president has been battling a severe case of bronchitis since the end of November. He was moved back into the ICU as a precaution following a “stubborn” high fever.

Bush is still expected to make a full recovery and his family is sending out their gratitude for the many thoughts and prayers for the sick president. "The Bushes thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes," McGrath told Reuters.

He is noted as communicating well with doctors. Thus far, he still does not have a date when he will be released from the hospital.
