Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter hospitalized in Georgia with urinary tract infection
(Reuters) - Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to a Georgia hospital over the holiday weekend for treatment of a urinary tract infection, the Carter Center said in a statement on Monday.
"He is feeling better and looks forward to returning home soon," the statement said. Carter, 95, the nation's oldest living former president, was discharged last week from another hospital after undergoing a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain from bleeding caused by recent falls.
