Jimmy Carter is back in the hospital and will have a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain Tuesday morning, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The problem is related to bleeding caused by his recent falls, including two in October. The procedure will take place at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, and neither the hospital nor the Carter Center divulged much except to say that Carter, 95, was resting comfortably with wife Rosalyn at his side, per the AP. (Carter previously survived a bout with cancer, a form of melanoma that had spread to his brain.)
