Brazilians say Venezuelan leader condition stable and with positive developments

Brazil’s Foreign minister says Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez seems to be improving after cancer surgery.
Brazil’s state-run news agency Agencia Brasil cites Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota as saying that Brazilian officials are monitoring daily the health of Chavez.

Patriota revealed that he has daily contacts with Vice-President and acting president Nicolas Maduro

Patriota says that the latest news on Chavez indicates “stabilization and even positive developments”.

Chavez underwent his fourth cancer-related surgery in Cuba last week. He’s remained secretive about the exact nature of the cancer that he’s been battling for more than 18 months.

The Brazilian official offered no more details regarding Chavez’s health. He said he’s staying informed through conversations with Venezuela’s Vice President Nicolas Maduro and Brazilian diplomats in Venezuela.

A team of Brazilian oncologists and surgeons participated in the latest surgery of President Chavez.

Cubans AND Brasilians working on him now and no mention of the respiratory disease that has had him pumped full of another type of anti-biotic.

Pneumonia, hopefully terminal. At least he would die a soft death which is far more than he deserves.

Anybody taking a bet he doesn't make it to January 10th, at least walking, not on a stretcher?

Wonder how much of him is left down-below? Not a lot after FOUR operations. Seen this all before: it will end in tears for him but tears of joy for me. Bastard, aren’t I, but at least you know where I stand?

I have experience of two of my friends dying as a result of this type of cancer.

Did you know that the cancer has metastasized?

Chavez has been supercharging his immune system with steroids (hence the bloating) but that has to stop otherwise he dies of other things. What faces him now is the result of turning the supercharger off.

It WILL be only a matter of a few months now, if that.
