It is routine in hospitals and we observed no complications. But it is clear that the development is not a good sign for the health of the prime minister.
In the morning, there was really immediate danger to his life, but now . . . (there is) no immediate danger.
The surgery proceeded with no complications . . . but . . . today's surgery didn't improve Sharon's health. Every such incident does not improve the prime minister's chances of waking up.
This is a lengthy process. It won't be in the coming hours. It will be at least 48 hours after the prime minister's emergence from surgery.
The central problem of Prime Minister Sharon is his unconsciousness. The stomach problem that was discovered overnight and today is in addition to the central problem.
Every such incident does not improve the prime minister's chances of waking up. All possibilities remain open, but with each passing day, the chances are lower.
The Prime Minister received the most appropriate treatment for the medical condition in which he found himself. He was treated by the best experts at Hadassah and we made every effort to consult with experts from other places.
There were no complications at all.
As far as his current condition is concerned, his state is serious, stable... there is no immediate danger to the life of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
