Former first lady Barbara Bush has been discharged from a Texas hospital where she spent nearly a week being treated for pneumonia.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said the wife of former President George H.W. Bush was released from Houston Methodist Hospital late this morning.

The 88-year-old Bush family matriarch had been in hospital since Monday.

She and her husband, the 41st president, live in Houston. The nation's longest-married presidential first couple will celebrate their 69th wedding anniversary on Monday.
