Previous President Jimmy Carter enters clinic for medical procedure (Surgery)



Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to a clinic on Monday evening for a medical procedure to diminish pressure on his mind, brought about by seeping because of his ongoing falls, his representative said. 

The method is booked for Tuesday morning at Emory University Hospital, Deanna Congileo said in an announcement. 

Carter has fallen in any event multiple times this year, and the main episode in the spring required hip substitution medical procedure. He made a trip to Nashville, Tennessee, and helped fabricate a Habitat for Humanity home in the wake of getting 14 stiches following a fall on Oct. 6. Furthermore, he was quickly hospitalized in the wake of breaking his pelvis on Oct. 21. He got a critical malignancy conclusion in 2015 however endure and has since said he is sans disease. 

About four decades after he left office and in spite of a body that is bombing following 95 years, the country's most established ever ex-president still encourages Sunday school generally two times every month at Maranatha Baptist Church in his little old neighborhood of Plains in southwest Georgia. His message is unfailingly about Jesus, not himself. 

Fire up. Tony Lowden, Carter's minister, said the ex-president was hospitalized Monday on what he called "a harsh day." 

"We simply need the entire nation to be in supplication for him," Lowden said in a phone meet. 

The congregation has reported that Carter won't train his Sunday school class this week. 

Carter is resting serenely, and his better half, Rosalynn, is with him, Congileo said.
