AUSTIN, Texas — Lady Bird Johnson was released from an Austin hospital Thursday, three weeks after suffering a mild stroke. 

The 89-year-old former first lady has made “a remarkable recovery,” said her daughter, Luci Baines Johnson. She said Johnson’s speaking and swallowing have improved each day. Johnson was taken to Seton Medical Center May 2 after she awoke from a nap at her home and had trouble speaking and swallowing medicine.
