Former first lady Bird Johnson was at home and feeling better Monday after being treated for bronchitis at a hospital over the weekend, a spokeswoman said.

The 92-year-old widow of former President Lyndon Baines Johnson was rushed to a hospital by ambulance on Saturday after she almost fainted when she tried to stand. She received intravenous antibiotics at Seton Medical Center and was released a few hours later.

“She’s doing great, she really is,” spokeswoman Betty Tilson told The Associated Press. “She has low blood pressure and if she gets up too fast she kind of sinks. I wouldn’t call it a full faint.”
