Some troubling news was reported this week about former President Jimmy Carter. He had an accident in his home and was hospitalized following hip surgery.
According to initial reports, Carter was getting ready to go turkey hunting when the accident took place. Now, he is reported to be “recovering comfortably” at the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia.
The Carter Center was the one to announce the news concerning Carter’s health. While they said that the 94-year-old was recovering well, they also revealed a hilarious update about the former president.
They said that Carter’s main concern is not about his recovery, but rather that turkey season will be ending soon!
They said, “President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit. He hopes the State of Georgia will allow him to roll over the unused limit to next year.”
According to CBS News, Georgia hunters are allowed to harvest three male turkeys per season. Carter’s request was taken to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, but an answer has not yet been given.
Following Carter’s accident, President Trump took to social media to talk about the accident and to share best wishes on his health.
Trump wrote, “Wishing former President Jimmy Carter a speedy recovery from his hip surgery earlier today. He was in such good spirits when we spoke last month- he will be fine!”
Please keep our former president in your prayers as he recovers! What do you think about his hilarious statement about where his priorities are? In other recent news, Laura Bush's family is in mourning after a sad loss. Pray for them as well.
