Jimmy Carter discharged from Cleveland hospital

Former President Jimmy Carter left a hospital in Cleveland, Ohio on Thursday afternoon after spending two days recovering from a gastric viral infection.

He will resume his schedule with a meeting this week in Washington, D.C., a statement from the Carter Center and MetroHealth Medical Center said.

Carter thanked his medical team for "attentive and comprehensive care" and expressed appreciation to all those who wished him well.

Carter, who turns 86 Friday, suffered stomach distress Tuesday during a flight to Cleveland, where he had planned to sign copies of his new book, "White House Diary."
