Jimmy Carter ‘up and walking’ a day after brain surgery

By

Former President Jimmy Carter is "up and walking" just a day after he underwent brain surgery to relieve pressure on his brain following a series of recent falls according to his pastor. Rev. Tony Lowden of Maranatha Baptist Church visited Carter at Emory University Hospital on Wednesday. 

Carter had surgery on Tuesday for a subdural hematoma, blood trapped on the brain’s surface. Carter Center spokeswoman Deanna Congileo explained that the bleeding was the result of a series of recent falls. 

In Spring, Carter fell and had to undergo hip replacement surgery. In October, he fell a further two times, hitting his head on the last one.
