Former president George H.W. Bush has been discharged from Methodist Hospital after treatment for an infection.

He had been removed from the ICU at Houston Methodist Hospital to a regular room after he was hospitalized days after his wife's Barbara Bush funeral, according to his spokesperson, Jim McGrath.

McGrath said that doctors reported he was doing well and that President Bush is "happy to return home." 

President Bush thanked everyone for their prayers and good wishes, he also said he is more focused on the Houston Rockets closing out their playoff series game against the Minnesota Timberwolves than anything that landed him in the hospital.  

Bush has planned to go to Maine next month.
