Pope's post-op situation under control

Rome (AsiaNews) - The head of the Holy See's press office, Dr Joaquin Navarro Valls released the following statement late this morning regarding the Pope's health:  "The Holy Father spent a night of tranquil rest. This morning he ate breakfast with a good appetite.  The post-operative situation continues regularly.  He is breathing on his own and cardio-circulatory conditions remain good.  Upon the advice of his doctors, the Pope must not speak for several days so as to favor the recovery of the functions of the larynx.  A new medical bulletin is not foreseen until next Monday, February 28 at 12:30 pm".

John Paul II was suddenly admitted to hospital late yesterday morning and underwent a tracheotomy yesterday evening.  The operation, which began at 8:20 pm and lasted 30 minutes, went well.
