Reports are surfacing that former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has been hospitalized.

The 95-year-old is currently in Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA as of Monday, November 11th. The Carter Center would send out an official statement in a tweet regarding Carter’s current well-being.

“President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him,” the statement says, for instance. The pressure in his brain is specifically from the bleeding that comes as a result of his recent falls.

Earlier this year, he broke his hip in May while on his way to go turkey hunting. He would end up needing hip surgery. Back in 2016, he would announce that he would no longer need radiation for the tumors located on his brain. He has really been through quite a lot!
