WASHINGTON – President Jimmy Carter was admitted to the hospital with a urinary tract infection.

Just last week, Carter, 95, was released from the hospital after undergoing surgery earlier in November to relieve pressure on his brain caused by bleeding related to recent falls. The most recent fall occurred Oct. 21 at his home when he suffered a minor pelvic fracture.

Carter, who served as president for one term from 1977 to 1981 and is now the longest-living former president, has been an active volunteer and philanthropist in his post-presidential life.

Carter was admitted to the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center this past weekend, a spokesperson said. "He is feeling better and looks forward to returning home soon."

This story is breaking and will be updated.

Gee, it’s been a bad couple of months for the former president. I hope he gets well quickly.

Why is he not in a Cuban hospital?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

I do too.  I thought Carter was our worst president till recently, but that doesn't mean I'm hoping for his demise.

UTIs are generally not that serious, but I guess at his age and given his numerous health problems recently, I suppose it was prudent to have him admitted.

@Gefn

He's 95. He might as well just go ahead and move into a hospital and be done with it.
It takes an special kind of "Stoopid" to make Trump look like a defenseless victim and gain public sympathy,but damned if the Dims didn't pull it off!

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page
