ATLANTA — The Carter Center issued a statement Thursday morning about President Jimmy Carter, who fell and broke a hip earlier this week. He was released from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center Thursday morning, and will continue to recuperate at home. He will undergo physical therapy, as part of his recovery from hip replacement surgery.

He plans to teach Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church on Sunday.

In addition, the statement said, on Wednesday, former first lady Rosalynn Carter felt faint and was admitted overnight to the hospital for observation and testing. She left the hospital with her husband this morning.

Both of the Carters extend their thanks to the many people who sent well wishes the past few days, the statement concludes.
