Former President George H.W. Bush has left the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital, where he was admitted over the weekend to treat an infection, and is expected to continue his recovery the next several days from “a regular patient room,” his spokesman said Wednesday.

Delivering an update on the 41st president’s health status in a statement, spokesman Jim McGrath said that Bush was “alert and talking with hospital staff, family and friends” at Houston Methodist Hospital and that his doctors were “very pleased with his progress.”
