Jimmy Carter, the 39th president of the United States, has been discharged after falling, yet again, from the hospital and supporters have taken to social media to air their concern.

Via their official Twitter, @cartercenter, Carter's humanitarian non-profit organization, shared a message declaring that he has chosen to recuperate in his Georgia home after getting released from a healthcare facility.

The statement, which was released on Thursday, October 24, reads:

"Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has been released from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center. He is looking forward to continuing to recuperate at his home in Plains, Georgia."

The message is concluded with a note of gratitude to all of Carter's supportive fans. It reads:

"Thanks, everyone, for their kind well wishes."

The statement comes soon after news of the 95-year-old politician being admitted into the hospital for a pelvis fracture, which happened in his home, surfaced online.

According to PEOPLE, admitting Carter into the facility was to put him under the keen "observation and treatment" of doctors. A spokesperson for the center allegedly described his injury as "minor" on Monday.

The reassuring statement didn't, however, sit too well with Carter's fans as the emergency hospitalization marked the third, which will be a result of a fall in the father of four's home.

Carter is famously described as the oldest living president in American history, which is perhaps why it causes great concern that he continuously suffers such trauma.

This is perhaps why the newest statement released by the Carter Center has stirred Twitter users.

One, @peanut_brigade commented:

"Dear Jimmy, please wait a little bit before doing your favourite rambunctious happy dance on the roof of your house. Take care of yourself, the world needs your wisdom. Love you more than words can say."

Another, @sammy27521 wrote:

"I hope he heals well. He needs to let others carry on his work. My love to humanitarian/President Jimmy Carter."

Despite his age of 95 years and numerous health scares, including a cancer diagnosis in 2015, reports share that Jimmy Carter still leads a very active life and that that would probably not change anytime soon.
