Jimmy Carter hospitalized for blood on the brain

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is in the hospital for bleeding on the brain.

The Carter Center says he was admitted to Emory University hospital Monday (November 11) night in Atlanta.

He's set to receive a procedure to relieve brain pressure.

The center says that pressure was caused by bleeding from his recent falls.

Carter served as president for one term beginning in 1977.

He turned 95 in October, making him the country's oldest living leader.

He fell twice that month, fracturing his pelvis and receiving stiches on his forehead.

Since leaving office he's carried out decades of humanitarian work and received a Nobel Prize for it.

Carter's age and his recent injuries haven't stopped him.

He was seen with a black eye and bandages at a recent Habitat for Humanity event.

"I had to go to the hospital and they took 14 stitches in my forehead and my eye's black as you notice.

But I had a number one priority and that was to come to Nashville to build houses." Carter was set to undergo the procedure on Tuesday (November 12) morning.
