Less than a week after being discharged from the hospital following surgery to relieve bleeding-related pressure on his brain, former President Jimmy Carter returned to the hospital over the weekend for treatment of a urinary tract infection, spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said Monday. "He is feeling better and looks forward to returning home soon," she added. "We will issue a statement when he is released for further rest and recovery at home." Carter, 95, is the longest-living former president and he has battled several recent health problems, including overcoming cancer a few years ago and two falls in October.
