Former President Bush moved out of intensive care.

HOUSTON (AP) Former President George H.W. Bush's condition continued to improve Saturday, prompting doctors to move him out of intensive care, a spokesman said.

"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," family spokesman Jim McGrath said Saturday. "The Bushes thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes."

Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough. He was moved to intensive care at the Houston hospital on Dec. 23 after he developed a fever.

On Friday, McGrath said Bush had improved since arriving in the ICU. He said he was alert and in good spirits and was even doing some singing.

2. Same here.

I've said many times that I despise the Bush Crime Family and everything they stand for, but I won't wish prolonged illness on anyone. Been there and it ain't fun!

So he said according to some post here on DU which did sound typical of the Bush Family to say.
