JIMMY CARTER: Recovering Well After Brain Surgery

President Jimmy Carter is the oldest, and quite possibly, the toughest former president.

The 95-year-old is recovering well and was even up and walking just a day after having brain surgery on Monday. His spokesperson, Deanna Congileo, says the procedure to reduce pressure on his brain was a success and there were no complications. She says he is in good spirits and will remain in the hospital “as long as advisable.” (USA Today)

Hot Takes:

  • He is one tough dude.
  • Carter had a subdural hematoma and had bleeding in his brain from a few recent falls.
  • You can be sure he’ll be out and about soon — probably building houses.
