    HOUSTON (AP) — A spokesman says former President George H.W. Bush’s condition continues to improve and that he was moved Saturday out of intensive care and into a regular hospital room.

    Family spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement Saturday that the Bushes thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes.

    Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough. He was moved to intensive care at Houston’s Methodist Hospital on Dec. 23 after he developed a fever.
