  Jimmy Carter is home from the hospital. What will his recovery look like? Anyone who's ever had a fragile grandparent knows that falls are especially dangerous for the elderly -- and Jimmy Carter has had three falls in the past six months. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Those tumbles -- one in May and two in October -- left the former president, age 95, with a broken hip, a fractured pelvis and 14 stitches on his forehead.Then came the greatest challenge of all: a operation to relieve the pressure that had accumulated in his brain after he hit his head.

Carter had previously been admitted to the hospital on November 11 for a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain. The pressure was caused by bleeding from his recent falls, the Carter Center said at the time. He was released the day before Thanksgiving.

He was also hospitalized twice in October and needed 14 stitches above his brow after his first fall, when he hit his forehead "on a sharp edge." He then received treatment for a minor pelvic fracture after his second fall.

He previously survived brain and liver cancer.
