Hugo Chavez faces tough cancer recovery, says Maduro

Source: BBC

Nicolas Maduro, Mr Chavez's handpicked successor, said the president's latest surgery in Cuba had been "complex, difficult, delicate".

Mr Maduro was speaking in Caracas following Mr Chavez's fourth cancer-related surgery on Tuesday.

He urged Venezuelans to pray for the 58-year-old president, and to face the "hard days" ahead calmly.

A solemn Mr Maduro, his voice cracking, said: "It was a complex, difficult, delicate operation," which meant that "the post-operative process is also going to be a complex and hard process".

1. I seriously think that every human should be born with a wart of cyanide on their wrist.

 

We can then decide (when the going gets tough if we want to use it). No way in hell would I want to dye from any painful disease. That's just me though!

Hope you make it President Chavez, best of luck.

3. Don't like him and his politics.

But still wish him a good recovery. No one deserve's to suffer like this.

But when the vice president makes a statement like this it doesn't look good for him. I suspect that Chavez end come's closer.

5. There will be lots of time for the right-wingers to gloat about this later.

Now is not the time to have to put up with their reveling in it, nor getting their last kicks in before they have to change the subject to the next Latin American leftist they hope to smear, and degrade to the world of people who know better.
