Former President Jimmy Carter was released from the hospital Wednesday following surgery to ease brain pressure caused by bleeding from a fall.
“He and Mrs. Carter look forward to enjoying Thanksgiving at home in Plains, where he will continue to recover,” The Carter Center said in a statement on Twitter. “The Carters are grateful for all the prayers, cards, and notes they have received and hope everyone will join them in enjoying special thanksgiving.” (RELATED: Jimmy Carter Is Back Teaching Sunday School After Fall)
