Bill Clinton was discharged after recovering from an infection

Former American President Bill Clinton was released Sunday from a Southern California hospital where he spent five days recovering from an infection not related to COVID-19 and will be heading to New York to continue his recovery.

Clinton left the University of California Irvine Medical Center at 8 a.m. with his wife Hillary Clinton on his arm. Dressed in jeans, a sports jacket and a mask, he left the hospital slowly and stopped to greet the doctors and nurses.

He raised his thumb when asked by a reporter how he felt. Then he and Hillary got into a black SUV and set off in a caravan escorted by the California Highway Patrol. “Fever and white blood cell count (Clinton’s) normalize, and he will return home to New York to finish his antibiotic treatment, ” Dr. Alpesh N. Amin said in a statement shared on Twitter by a spokesman for the 75-year-old Clinton.

On Saturday night, her spokesperson Angel Ureña reported in a statement that Clinton would stay one more night in the hospital “to receive intravenous antibiotics before her discharge scheduled for tomorrow.” He added that all the health indicators “were in the right direction.” “The president continues to make excellent progress since the last 24 hours,” said Ureña.

His wife Hillary Clinton was with her husband in the hospital. She returned Saturday with her daughter Chelsea Clinton around 8 a.m. Saturday in an SUV accompanied by Secret Service agents.

President Joe Biden said Friday night that he had spoken with him and that he “sends his regards.” “Okay, it really is,” Biden said in remarks at the University of Connecticut.

“Clinton was hospitalized on Tuesday due to an infection not related to COVID-19,” Ureña said. “He is in high spirits and spends time with his family, catching up with friends and watching college football,” Ureña said in a statement Saturday.

An aide for the former president said that Clinton had a urological infection that left his blood, is recovering, but never went into septic shock, a problem that could be fatal. The collaborator reported that Clinton was in an intensive care section but not receiving intensive care.

Since leaving the White House in 2011, the former president has had several health crises. In 2004, he underwent quadruple bypass surgery after suffering prolonged chest pain and shortness of breath. In 2005 he had surgery on a partially collapsed lung and in 2010 a pair of stents were implanted in a coronary artery.

Clinton lost weight and improved her health after adopting a largely vegan diet. He resumed his activities and campaigned for Democratic candidates, especially for Hillary Clinton who failed in 2008 to win the presidential nomination. In 2016, when Hillary Clinton was seeking to be the Democratic presidential standard-bearer, her husband, then a grandfather and about to turn 70, again supported her in the campaign.
