Chavez in stable condition

Hugo Chavez

President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, is in stable conditions after going through ‘complex and delicate’ surgery in Cuba, the Venezuelan embassy here is reporting.

In a release the embassy said Chavez went through a surgical operation that lasted six hours and is presently undergoing “complex postoperative recovery process.”

“We trust the physical and spiritual strength of Commander Hugo Chávez and the medical treatment,” the embassy said.

The release continues, “The Bolivarian Government invites the Venezuelan people and other fraternal peoples to be with President Chávez in this new testing time with their prayers and solidarity, which sure make him stronger every day.”

Chavez is accompanied by his closest relatives who, according to the release, thank those who show solidarity and affection for the president.

Chavez, 58, has undergone three surgeries to remove two tumors since June 2011.

    Comrade Chavez is a very strong man both mentally and physically. I believe that his tough mental attitude keeps him strong and kicking. Viva Chavez.

    Is this the same Hugo Chavez who had his opponents in hiding for fear of prosecution? Oh ho, God is in charge not man and their lost for power; Others like him must take note. Those of us who live a little longer will see a lot more like him.

    I pray for Hugo Chavez!! I would like him to know that with God nothing is impossible. God is able to miraculously heal him through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. He only has to believe.
    I would like to tell him also that the world system he is trying to change until mankind acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ. His fight is hopeless.
    Chavez therefore should make Jesus Christ his Lord and Personal Savior/Healer.
    God’s blessings be upon you!!!
