Jimmy Carter to have surgery


Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to a hospital Monday evening for surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by bleeding due to his recent falls, his spokeswoma­n said.

The procedure is scheduled for this morning at Emory University Hospital, Deanna Congileo said in a statement.

Carter has fallen at least three times this year, and the first incident in the spring required hip surgery.

Carter is resting comfortabl­y, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him, Congileo said.
