Former President George H.W. Bush was released Monday from a Houston hospital after being treated for pneumonia.

Bush was admitted to the hospital on January 14 for shortness of breath.

This is not the first time the elderly former president had a lengthy stay in a hospital.

Before being hospitalized, Bush said his health would prevent him from attending the inauguration.

McGrath says Bush is thankful for the prayers and kind messages he's received and for the "world-class care" from doctors and nurses at the hospital. Bush spent two months in the hospital for bronchitis in 2012, and was hospitalized for shortness of breath in 2014.

Bush, who served as commander-in-chief from 1989 to 1993, is the oldest of the five living former U.S. presidents.

Bush's wife, former First Lady Barbara Bush, 91, was admitted to the same hospital on January 18 as a "precaution".
