Former president Jimmy Carter is back in the hospital for the fourth time in roughly two months, according to a statement from The Carter Center on Monday.

Carter was admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia, last weekend for a urinary tract infection. The Carter Center said on Twitter that he was recovering and was due to return home soon.

This fall has seen Carter in the hospital multiple times. He received 14 stitches in early October after a fall in his home. Later that month, he was admitted to Phoebe Sumter after fracturing his pelvis during another fall. Suffering a brain bleed from multiple falls, the former president was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Georgia last month for treatment.

🔦 Carter, at 95 years old, is the longest-lived president in U.S. history.
