Former President Clinton gave an update on his condition on Wednesday, saying in a video posted to Twitter that he is "on the road to recovery."

In the video, Clinton thanked his well-wishers and health care providers for their support while he was hospitalized at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center for sepsis.

"I'm really glad to be back home. I'm doing great, enjoying this beautiful fall weather. I'm on the road to recovery, but I want to remind everyone out there [to] take the time to listen to your bodies and care for yourselves," Clinton said.

"We all have work to do, and each of us has an important role to play in life and in the immediate future. I, for one, am gonna do my best to be around, to keep doing the most good I can for a lot longer," he added.

When Clinton's hospitalization was announced last week, his physicians Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack said he had responded well to antibiotics.

"After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well," they added. "The California-based medical team has been in constant communication with the President's New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist. We hope to have him go home soon," they said at the time.

The former president was discharged on Sunday, with Amin saying Clinton, 75, would finish his course of antibiotics at home in New York.
