Former President Jimmy Carter said he plans to teach Sunday School at his church just a few days after having surgery on his broken hip, according to The Washington Times.
Carter was released from the hospital on Thursday after surgery on his hip, which he broke while preparing to leave for a hunting trip on Monday. The 94-year-old will continue to recover at home in Plains, Georgia with his wife Rosalynn.
Physical therapy will be part of his recovery, but that won’t keep him from teaching at Maranatha Baptist Church where he has attended since leaving office in 1981.
Now the longest-living U.S. president after the death of George H.W. Bush in November, Carter was diagnosed with skin, liver and brain cancer in 2015, but has been cancer-free since receiving treatment.
Rosalynn was also admitted to the hospital briefly after feeling faint, but was released with her husband. Carter spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said that both Carters “extend their thanks to the many people who sent well wishes the past few days.”
