(CNN) - Former President Jimmy Carter, who had an upset stomach during a flight to Cleveland, Ohio, will spend the night in the hospital before resuming his book tour Wednesday, the Carter Center said in a statement.
Carter was taken Tuesday morning to MetroHealth Hospital, where he was under observation and resting comfortably, the Atlanta, Georgia-based center said. His doctor recommended he stay the night at the hospital to rest, officials said.
"He is fully alert and participating in all decision-making related to his care," the hospital said about Carter, who received a phone call from President Barack Obama. "The decision to admit him overnight is purely precautionary."
