Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is recovering at home following a stint in hospital earlier this week (beg18Oct10).
The 'Iron Lady' was forced to pull out of her 85th birthday party at her former residence, 10 Downing Street in London, earlier this month (13Oct10) because she was too ill to attend.
Thatcher then sparked further fears for her health when she was taken to Cromwell Hospital in the British capital on Tuesday (18Oct10) as a "precautionary measure".
But her spokesperson has now revealed she is resting at home and is showing signs of improvement.
The rep says, "She is a lot brighter, sitting up in a chair in her own room."
Concerns for Thatcher's health have escalated following a number of strokes. She broke her arm in a fall at her home last year (09).
