Jimmy Carter released from hospital

(CNN) — Former President Jimmy Carter is heading home after spending two weeks in the hospital.

Emory Hospital in Atlanta released Carter Wednesday morning after he underwent a procedure earlier this month to relieve pressure on the brain. The pressure was the result of bleeding from several recent falls. 

Carter will celebrate Thanksgiving with his family in his rural hometown of Plains, Georgia.

Jimmy Carter is the oldest living former U.S. president at 95 years old.
