WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former President Jimmy Carter has landed in Washington after spending two nights in an Ohio hospital, where doctors said a viral infection likely gave him stomach problems.
Carter, wearing a dark blazer, walked down the steps of a private jet Thursday at Reagan National Airport, stepped into an SUV and drove away.
Doctors advised the 85-year-old to remain at MetroHealth Medical Center after he was rushed from an airplane to the emergency room Tuesday morning with an upset stomach.
He headed to Washington for a long-planned, private meeting after hospital officials said the infection had cleared up.
Carter became ill during a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Cleveland and was rushed to the hospital after the plane landed.
