Former President Bill Clinton was released from a Southern California hospital early Sunday after he was admitted and treated for a urological and blood infection.

"His fever and white blood cell count are normalized and he will return home to New York to finish his course of antibiotics," said Clinton's lead doctor, Dr. Alpesh Amin. "On behalf of everyone at UC Irvine Medical Center, we were honored to have treated him and will continue to monitor his progress."

Clinton, 75, was monitored for six days. He will reportedly return to New York state with wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and daughter, Chelsea.

He will finish his antibiotic course at his home for the rest of his treatment, according to Clinton spokesperson Angel Urena.

Urena gave updates on Twitter Saturday as well, posting that “President Clinton continued to make excellent progress over the last 24 hours." 

"He will remain overnight at UC Irvine Medical Center to continue to receive IV antibiotics before an expected discharge tomorrow. He is in great spirits and has been spending time with family,” Urena said. 

Clinton's doctors said urological infections are very common in older people. They said although they are easily treated, spreading to the bloodstream can happen rapidly in these cases. 

He has also been admitted to the hospital for a longer period of time because the kind of antibiotic needed to heal his type of infection has to be given through IV and not by an oral medication, according to a source familiar with his hospital stay. 

President Joe Biden sent Clinton “get well” wishes on Friday through a phone call along with wishes Saturday from his own former Vice President Al Gore, current Vice President Kamala Harris, and former President George W. Bush.
