US - Former US president, George H.W. Bush, who was hospitalised shortly after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush, has been released from the hospital after treatment for an infection, a spokesman said.
Bush, 93, was admitted to intensive care on April 22, a day after his wife who died at 73 years, was laid to rest following a memorial service.
Prior to that service, he had sat near his wife's coffin, greeting well-wishers who had come to pay their respects.
On Wednesday, May 2, Bush's office said he was alert, talking with hospital staff and family, and eager to follow the progress of the Houston Rockets basketball team as they navigated the NBA playoffs.
On Friday night, a statement was released announcing he was headed home.
"President @GeorgeHWBush was discharged from @MethodistHosp after treatment for an infection. His doctors report he is doing well and is happy to return home," said the statement from family spokesman Jim McGrath.
