Former President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized for a procedure to reduce pressure on his brain.
Carter, 95, was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta on Monday, with an operation scheduled for Tuesday morning, according to a statement from The Carter Center.
The statement stated that pressure on his brain was caused by bleeding "due to his recent collapse".
"President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him," the statement concludes.

Carter, whose birthday is October 1, is the longest surviving US president in history. He also broke his hip after suffering a fall in his home this past May while preparing to go turkey hunting.
The former president announced in 2016 that he no longer needed radiation to treat cancer, which spread to spots in his brain.

The 39th chief executive served from 1977 to 1981, when he was in his 50s.
Carter said earlier this year that he expects "an age limit" to hold the highest elected office in the United States.
