Former President Jimmy Carter is recovering at his home in Plains, Ga., after undergoing emergency surgery for a broken hip. Carter was on his way to hunt for turkeys on Monday when he fell and fractured his hip. Doctors operated to repair it a short time later.
Deanna Congileo, the former president’s spokeswoman, said Carter is doing well. 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 rollover the unused limit to next year,” she said in a statement.
