UPDATE 1-Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter released from hospital
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was released from a Georgia hospital on Wednesday where he had been undergoing treatment for a urinary tract infection, his spokeswoman said. "He said he looks forward to further rest and recovery at home in Plains, Georgia. He and Mrs. Carter wish everyone peace and joy this holiday season," Deanna Congileo, Carter's press secretary at the Carter Center, said in a statement.
Carter, 95, the nation's 39th president, was admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, over the weekend, suffering from a urinary tract infection, according to the Carter Center. That hospitalization came days after Carter, who resides in Plains, Georgia, was discharged from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta following the latest in a string of recent health scares.
He was admitted to Emory on Nov. 11, accompanied by his wife, Rosalynn, 92, for a procedure to relieve pressure from bleeding on the outer lining of his brain - a subdural hematoma - caused by recent falls. Doctors pronounced the surgery a success.
