The former president gave a thumbs up as he left the hospital with wife and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Health Department of Medicine Executive Director Dr. Alpesh N. Amin, who oversaw Clinton's medical treatment, said Clinton's “fever and white blood cell count are normalized, and he will return home to New York to finish his course of antibiotics."
