Nelson Mandela hospitalized again!!!
« on: June 08, 2013, 08:10 PM »
The former South African president and anti-apartheid leader has had a recurrence of a lung infection.

Former South African president, Nelson Mandela, is in serious but stable condition after being taken to a hospital to be treated for a lung infection early on Saturday.

Mandela, who will soon clock 95, was treated in a hospital several times in recent months, with the last discharge on April 6 after doctors drained fluid from his lung area after diagnosing him with pneumonia. He has been particularly vulnerable to respiratory problems since contracting tuberculosis during his 27-year imprisonment under apartheid.

"During the past few days, former President Nelson Mandela has had a recurrence of lung infection," said a statement from the office of President Jacob Zuma. "This morning at about 1:30a.m., his condition deteriorated and he was transferred to a Pretoria hospital."

It's said that Mandela was receiveing expert medical care and doctors are doing everything possible make him better and comfortable."


 

Happy Birthday to Yvonne Nelson (3.0 version)
