Former U.S. first lady is discharged from hospital

Former U.S. first lady Lady Bird Johnson was released from a Texas hospital Thursday afternoon and was resting comfortably at her home.

Johnson, 94, was admitted a week ago and treated for a low-grade fever.

"After a week of observation and tests, the doctors released Mrs. Johnson to go home. Because of her stroke in 2002, her family and physicians always operate with caution. Everyone - especially Mrs. Johnson - is so pleased that she is home," said family spokesman Neal Spelce.

Johnson, the widow of the late President Lyndon B. Johnson, suffered a stroke in 2002 that left her with difficulty speaking. She still communicates through facial expressions and other means and occasionally makes public appearances.

Her daughters, Luci Baines Johnson and Lynda Johnson Robb, and other family members were with her during her hospital stay.

"We are forever indebted to people from across the country for their expressions of loving support," Luci Baines Johnson said.
