Carter was released from hospital Thursday morning, the Carter Center announced and will continue to recover at home. He was admitted Monday after a fall on his way to go turkey hunting, and later underwent a successful surgery at the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia.
"He will undergo physical therapy as part of his recovery from hip replacement President Carter plans to teach Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church this weekend, "the Carter Center said in a statement.
On Monday, the Carter Center said Carter was more concerned about the upcoming end of the hunting season than the fall.
"President Carter said his main concern is that the turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit," the statement said. "He hopes the state of Georgia will allow him to roll the unused limit to next year."
Former first lady Rosalynn Carter, 91, also spent time in the hospital this week.
"She felt faint and was admitted overnight to the hospital for observation and testing. She left the hospital with President Carter this morning," the Carter Center statement said.
The Carters extended their thanks to the many people who sent their wishes this week, including a tweet from Trump himself.
