Jimmy Carter To Undergo Brain Pressure Procedure

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

Former President Jimmy Carter was admitted into Emory University Hospital on Monday for a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain, stemming from his recent falls, the Carter Center said. The Carter Center released a statement that said his procedure is scheduled for Tuesday morning. “President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him,” the statement continued.

On Oct. 21, he suffered a “minor pelvic fracture” from a fall at his home in Plains. Carter, who turned 95 earlier in the month, spent three days at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus before being released. That was his second accident in two weeks and third major accident since May, when he fell and broke his hip. Carter also bumped his head in October and required 14 stitches.
