Jimmy Carter undergoes surgery after breaking hip
By ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter broke his hip Monday at his Georgia home, underwent surgery and was recovering comfortably, a spokeswoman for the Carter Center said.

Carter was on his way to go turkey hunting, the spokeswoman, Deanna Congileo, said in a statement. She said that he was treated in Americus, Georgia, near his home in Plains, and that his wife, Rosalynn, was with him.

In the statement, Congileo said: “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.”

It's almost over now.  If he lasts another year I would be surprised.

Hip surgery is not as big a deal these days. My mother broke her hip and was too scared to stand after that. She lasted 2 years.
Hahahahaha....No seriously. Who is the President?
