Best Wishes Go To Jimmy Carter

May 13, 2019

We love Jimmy Carter at Caffeinated Politics.

Former president Jimmy Carter is recovering from surgery after a fall Monday morning in which he broke his hip.

The Carter Center said in a statement that Carter, 94, was leaving his home in Plains, Ga., to go turkey hunting when he fell. The former president is recovering at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Ga., after surgery that his surgeon said was successful. His wife, Rosalynn, is with him.

“President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit,” the Carter Center said in its statement. “He hopes the state of Georgia will allow him to roll over the unused limit to next year.”

In March, Carter surpassed George H.W. Bush as the longest-living president in U.S. history.
