(ABC NEWS) – Doctors who are treating former President George H.W. Bush and his wife at a Houston hospital said today that the former president is out of the ICU and the former first lady has been discharged.

The couple released a photo and thanked supporters via the Twitter account of their post-White House spokesperson, Jim McGraw.

George Bush, 92, was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital Jan. 14 after exhibiting shortness of breath and has been treated for pneumonia in the intensive care unit during his stay.

Barbara Bush, 91, entered the same hospital Wednesday with bronchitis.

Drs. Amy Mynderse and Clint Doerr, who have been treating the Bushes, answered reporters’ questions about their medical treatment this morning.

At one point during the former president’s stay, doctors inserted a breathing tube, and a ventilator was employed to assist his breathing. The tube was removed Friday, the doctors said, adding that he has been sitting up and watching television.
