May 16, 2019

As former President Jimmy Carter continued healing Wednesday night from hip surgery, his wife, Rosalynn, felt faint and was admitted for observation, according to the Carter Center.

Both Carters walked out together Thursday morning.

The former president fell Monday at his home in Plains, while on his way to hunt turkey. He was recovering from surgery to repair a broken hip at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus. Carter joked he didn't want to miss the end of the hunting season and hoped the state would allow him to "rollover the unused limit to next year."
