Jimmy Carter hospitalized with urinary tract infection

Dec. 2 (UPI) — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized this weekend for a urinary tract infection, the Carter Center said Monday.

In a statement Monday evening, the foundation said Carter, 95, was “feeling better and looks forward to returning home soon” after being admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Ga., over the weekend.

“We will issue a statement when he is released for further rest and recovery at home,” the Carter Center said.

Last month, Carter underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain after being diagnosed with a subdural hematoma due to a series of falls.

Carter broke his hip in May and fractured his pelvis in October. An October fall left him with 14 stitches and a bruise above his left eye.

He has also survived brain and liver cancer.

At 95, Carter is the oldest living U.S. president in history.
