Former President Bill Clinton was released from the hospital Sunday morning after being treated for a UTI.

Clinton, 75, was admitted to University of California Irvine Tuesday when his urinary tract infection spread to his bloodstream.

His fever and white blood cell count have now stabilized, his doctors said Sunday.

“On behalf of everyone at UC Irvine Medical Center, we were honored to have treated him and will continue to monitor his progress,” Dr. Alpesh N. Amin, Chair, Department of Medicine and Executive Director of Hospital Medicine at UC Irvine Health, said in a statement.

Clinton will now return home to New York to continue his antibiotics.

The 42nd president spent his hospital stay “catching up with friends and watching football,” his spokesman previously said.

He also spoke to President Biden by phone.

Clinton was in California for a private reception and dinner for the nonprofit Clinton Foundation Tuesday when he became ill.

His wife, Hillary, was photographed arriving at the hospital Thursday.
