New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says his father, 82-year-old former Gov. Mario Cuomo, is home from the hospital and in good spirits.

The younger 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.

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

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.
