Former Governor Mario Cuomo Home from Hospital

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says his father is home from the hospital and in good spirits.

82-year-old former Governor Mario Cuomo was hospitalized earlier this month with what was described as a heart condition.

The younger Cuomo said Thursday his father is "very strong and the doctors are pleased with the progress that he's making.''

Governor Cuomo tells reporters that he saw his father Wednesday night and chatted with him Thursday morning. He says his father's illness is one reason he himself hasn't gone on tour promoting his recently published book.

The governor's office said earlier this month that the elder Cuomo was hospitalized and being treated for a heart condition. Details have not been disclosed.
