Our oldest living president is having yet another health scare.
Former President Jimmy Carter was rushed to the hospital this week for treatment of a urinary tract infection.
At 95, Carter’s “minor” health issues can be extremely significant.
According to reports, Carter was taken to a local hospital in Georgia for treatment of a urinary tract infection. As of Tuesday morning, Carter had not yet been released, but his spokesperson did say he was feeling better.
The statement read, “Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Ga., this past weekend for treatment for a urinary tract infection.”
“He is feeling better and looks forward to returning home soon. We will issue a statement when he is released for further rest and recovery at home.”
Onslaught of problems
It was only two weeks ago that Jimmy Carter had been admitted to a hospital to relieve pressure on his brain from a previous injury.
A little more than a month ago, Carter fell and suffered a minor pelvic fracture in the fall. That accident only happened a couple of weeks before another fall, which resulted in a broken hip for the former president.
Carter made an appearance after the fall, showing a bruised face, which is more than likely the injury that caused the need for the visit in early November.
In 2017, Carter was hospitalized for dehydration while working for Habitat for Humanity. In 2015, it was found that skin cancer had spread to Carter’s liver and brain.
It was during that announcement that Carter stated he was perfectly comfortable when the time came for him to leave this earth. Carter has tenaciously held on, and despite his many health incidents, he seems to be in good spirits.
Rest up and get well soon, Mr. Carter. We are all pulling for your speedy recovery.
