Barbara Bush released from hospital

Breaking News

Former first lady Barbara Bush was released from a Texas
hospital Wednesday, four days after being admitted for a series of tests.

Doctors believe the 84-year-old wife of former President George H.W. Bush may have suffered a mild relapse of Graves disease, a thyroid condition for which she was first treated in 1989, according to a statement released from Houston's Methodist Hospital.

In response, Mrs. Bush's medication levels have been adjusted, the statement said. "Upon discharge she was alert, talkative and appeared to be getting stronger as she prepared to return home," it said.
