George HW Bush has left the building known as Methodist Hospital in Houston a week after he was hospitalized for shortness of breath. "He is now resting at home, grateful to the doctors and nurses for their superb care," says a spokesman, as per ABC News. At 90, Bush is the nation's oldest living former commander in chief; he suffers from a form of Parkinson's, notes the AP. In a statement yesterday, Bush and wife Barbara said they wished to "thank everyone for their good wishes and prayers." (More George HW Bush stories.)
