HOUSTON, Texas — Former President George H.W. Bush has been moved out of intensive care at a Houston hospital after his condition improved, a family spokesman said Saturday.

Bush, the oldest surviving president at 88, is now in a regular patient room at Methodist Hospital, where he will continue his recovery, the spokesman said.

“The Bushes thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes,” family spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement.

Bush was admitted to the Houston hospital Nov. 23 suffering from a bronchial cough. McGrath said earlier this week that a series of setbacks, including a persistent fever, caused doctors to move Bush into the intensive care unit Sunday.

On Friday, McGrath said Bush’s doctors and his family were “cautiously optimistic that the current course of treatment will be effective.”

McGrath said Bush, a World War II veteran, former CIA director and father of former President George W. Bush, was in good spirits and even engaged in singing with his doctors and nurses.

    as far as I am concerned that whole thing in Persian Gulf is nothing more than big prick-waving dick fight. In this particular case Saddam Husein had questioned the size of George Bush's dick. And George Bush had been called "Wimp" for so long wimp rhymes with limp George has been called The Wimp for so long that he has to act out his manhood fantasies by sending other people's children to die. Even the name – BUSH is related to the genitals without being the genitals. A bush is a sort of passive secondary sex characteristic. Now, if this man's name had been George Boner… Well he might have feel a little bit better about himself and we would not had any trouble over there in the first place.
