Earlier this month, the former president took a fall that resulted in 14 stitches in his head and a black eye. However, even after this incident, he still made his way over to Habitat for Humanity to build homes for the less fortunate. Photos show the 95-year-old working away with an obvious black eye. He didn’t care about his own misfortunes and wanted to be there to help.
However, earlier this year would be the first of the falls which caused him to break his hip. He needed surgery for it and would need to take some time off and recover. Carter seems to be powering through all these falls, but many fans and followers of him are concerned.
Fans and Followers Show Concern
“I hope he heals well. He needs to let others carry on his work. My love to humanitarian/President Jimmy Carter,” someone writes in response to the Carter Center’s tweet. Another person says “Dear Jimmy, please wait a little bit before doing your favorite rambunctious happy dance on the roof of your house. Take care of yourself, the world needs your wisdom. Love you more than words can say.”
We certainly hope that Carter is resting and recovering well. He deserves some much-needed time off from his favorite activities!
