Former President Carter is out of the hospital and plans on teaching Sunday school this weekend after breaking his hip before a turkey hunt.

“President Carter was released from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center today and will continue to recuperate at home,” a statement from The Carter Center announced Thursday.


The 94-year-old ex-commander in chief will undergo physical therapy, according to his human rights and anti-poverty organization.

“President Carter plans to teach Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church this weekend,” the statement said.

Carter — who in March became the longest-living former president in history — broke his hip Monday in a fall at his Georgia home as he was leaving to go turkey hunting.

“President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit,” a spokeswoman said shortly after news of his fall.

Carter’s wife, Rosalynn Carter, also made a trip to the hospital this week, according to The Carter Center.

The 91-year-old former first lady “felt faint and was admitted overnight to the hospital for observation and testing. She left the hospital with President Carter this morning.”
