Holy Father recovering in hospital
Comment Email Print
¬†"The Holy Father has had a night of tranquil rest. This morning he had breakfast with a healthy appetite. The post-surgery recovery is proceeding regularly". This was the announcement made today by the Vatican spokesman Joacquim Navarro-Valls. He also noted that the Pope's breathing was "autonomous and his cardio-vascular conditions are stable and good". Doctors have prescribed that "the Pope will have to avoid speaking for a few days in order to allow the recovery of the larynx". Speaking in the Vatican Press Room, Navarro-Valls added that John Paul II does not have "a bronco-pulmonary infection", "he did not have any fever" nor did he "need any machines to help him breathe". The Vatican spokesman added that last night ≠ upon returning to his room at the tenth floor of the Gemelli Hospital after the tracheotomy operation ≠ the Pope had not lost his sense of humour but had written: "What have you done to me?" and "semper totus tuus", his Latin motto meaning "always entirely yours" - referring to Our Lady. Crowds have been gathering around the hospital all day praying for the Pope. Navarro said that another announcement on teh Pope's condition would be made on Monday. Source: VIS
