Former President Jimmy Carter is in the hospital yet again, this time for a urinary tract infection. According to a statement from The Carter Center, the 95-year-old was admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia over the weekend. 

Although he is currently in the hospital, the former president is already feeling better and looks forward to heading home shortly.

Carter was in the hospital a few weeks ago for a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain caused by bleeding from recent falls. 

Back in May, Carter fell and broke his hip while heading out to hunt turkey. He was in great spirits though, saying he wanted to fill his turkey tag before the season ended. 

He fell again in October and broke his pelvis. 

The Carter Center plans to release a statement once the former president is released from the hospital and is at home recovering.
