A spokeswoman for Jimmy Carter says the former U.S. president has been discharged from a hospital after being treated for a urinary tract infection.
Carter Center spokeswoman Deanna Congileo says the 95-year-old was discharged Wednesday afternoon. Congileo said Monday that Carter was already feeling better following his treatment.
Carter has overcome several health challenges in recent years, including melanoma cancer on his brain. The former President fell earlier this year while getting ready to go turkey hunting. Carter’s grandson, Jason Carter, told WZQZ News that his grandfather had gone back into the house to get his cane when he fell. The former President had two more falls since then and was admitted to Emory University Hospital to relieve pressure on his brain caused by bleeding internally from the fall.
The former President was back at home in Plains as of Wednesday afternoon.
