Chicago Sun-Times: The 95-year-old former president Jimmy Carter will undergo a procedure Tuesday to “relieve pressure on his brain,” a spokesperson said.
Former President Jimmy Carter was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta on Monday night, according to a Carter Center statement, and will undergo a procedure on Tuesday morning to “to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by bleeding due to his recent falls.
“President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him,” the statement said. Carter, 95, was hospitalized last month after a fall in his home in Georgia.
In May, Carter broke his hip on his way to go turkey hunting. At the time, Carter Center spokesperson Deanna Congileo, said in a statement, “President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit. He hopes the State of Georgia will allow him to rollover the unused limit to next year.”
Carter revealed in 2015 that cancer was found on his liver and brain. After treatment, there were no signs of the disease.
