George H.W. Bush Leaves ICU — His Main Concern Is Watching Basketball

Former president George H.W. Bush just left intensive care and his health is doing much better.

His first concern after leaving intensive care — watching the Houston Rockets play in the NBA playoffs.

Bush’s spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted:

“President Bush naturally thanks everyone for their prayers and good wishes,” the statement reads in part.

“He also wants to assure everyone that, as good as he feels now, he is more focused on the Houston Rockets closing out their playoff series against the Minnesota Timberwolves than anything that landed him in the hospital.”

Bush’s wife Barbara Bush passed away last week. (RELATED: George W. Bush Shared A Photo Of His Mom’s Casket — His 7 Word Caption Will Crush You)
