Cuban leader Fidel Castro is in a very grave condition following 3 failed operations and an intestinal tract infection. The report in a Spanish newspaper quotes unnamed sources who work in the same hospital as surgeon Jose Luis Garcia Sabrido. Sabrido flew to Cuba in December to treat the 80 year old leader.

MADRID, Spain - Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro is in "very grave" condition after three failed operations and complications from an intestinal infection, a Spanish newspaper said Tuesday.

The newspaper El Pais cited two unnamed sources from the Gregorio Maranon hospital in the Spanish capital of Madrid. The facility employs surgeon Jose Luis Garcia Sabrido, who flew to Cuba in December to treat the 80-year-old Castro.

In a report published on its Web site, El Pais said: "A grave infection in the large intestine, at least three failed operations and various complications have left the Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro, laid up with a very grave prognosis."

Based on the description, Castro is suffering from what we call in the medical field: multi system organ failure. Given his age and what appears to a poor general condition, these reports may be accurate. Three operations, successful or not take their toll on the body. Factor in his age and the supposed intestinal infection and that it means its just a matter of time for Fidel

I just hope the post-castro Cuba goes well for the Cubans and that some foreign country doesn't interfere... You know which country.

"Castro is dieing soon" story gets a lot of media time and must be like the 5th edition-revision in the last couple years, so I am being to wonder if these stories are pure psyops.


Doctor denies saying Castro in serious condition CNN
MADRID, Spain (CNN) -- A Spanish doctor who examined Cuban leader Fidel Castro last month told CNN he is not the source of a report in a Spanish newspaper that said Castro suffered from a serious infection of the large intestine and remains in serious condition.

Dr. Jose Luis Garcia Sabrido, chief of surgery at the public hospital Gregorio Maranon in Madrid, told CNN's Al Goodman Tuesday morning that any statement that did not come directly from Castro's doctors was "without foundation."

Dr. Garcia Sabrido said he stood by his statement made late last month in which he said Castro is recovering from his ailments and does not have cancer. At that time, Dr. Garcia Sabrido told reporters on December 26 that Castro was doing "fantastically well" with his treatment.

Guess we shall find out who's blowing the smoke eventually.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. I hope Venezuala stays out of their business, too.

We can only hope it goes from "very grave" to into the grave. Good Riddance to a evil dictator

At least until they cart out the next "stand-in"... Personally, I'm awaiting the news story of Castro's "miraculous recovery", just so I can get a hearty laugh...like a few years back, when he was on his deathbed, and the next day we see his double doing jumping jacks.... Eventually, he'll be too "old" for them to carry on this ruse, but "Castro" is more likely to live till he's 100


Though, they may let him "die" just as long as his relatives continue the regime of oppression.

I bet the Cubans are very happy that Castro is about to die.

The news from them today is that it is a lie. Not an untruth. Not falso. But a lie.

They sure don't care who they piss off these days, do they? Anyway - who cares about rumors out of stupid old Cuba? What happens happens. So what? It's a 3rd world country, after all, isn't it? Is it? hmm

He's probably already dead and they (the Cuban government) are just getting all their communist ducks in a row. The funeral should be interesting.

Cindy Sheehan was most impressed with the Cuban medical school she visited:



Havana, (ACN) "I'm impressed with the school and the students; I've never seen anything similar in the world," wrote US peace activist Cindy Sheehan in the guest book of Havana's Latin American School of Medical Sciences after his visit to that educational center on Monday.

Fidel should be dancing in the streets... Shouldn't he Cindy?

Diverticulitis can be a serious disease, a somewhat common affliction among older people and is usually easily treated without surgical intervention.



In general, treatment depends on the severity of your symptoms and whether this is your first attack of diverticulitis. If your symptoms are mild, a liquid or low-fiber diet and antibiotics may be all you need. But if you're at risk of complications or have recurrent attacks of diverticulitis, you may need more advanced care.

I believe that I've had an epiphany... Socialized medicine can be effective.

I just really wish he'd just get it over with and die already. He has much to answer for in the hereafter.

Mirthful Me. It doesn't take much to impress Ms. Sheehan does it?

When "said country", namely the U.S., had interfered before, Cuba was a lot better than it is now.... All Cuban households had tvs, people were not going hungry, yes, there was corruption, like in every major city in the world, but people were free, and were not starving...

Hope he dies soon in agony for what he has done to our people.

Sheehan should move there and become a Cuban citizen, without being a kissass for the dictatorship in Cuba, she would then change her mind about a few things...

I'm betting he's been dead for years, but even his doubles are getting old, and it's getting harder and harder to play the role, LOL.... One can only live (believably) for so long....

I don't think much will change though. I'm sure they'll (the ones in charge after) will strive to maintain the same level of dictatorship.

Paraphrasing ...
Now, I don't care who you are, that right there was good and funny!


But I wonder how many will actually "get" your meaning?

Subtle, but so right on!

What, no castro defenders/apologists yet?

Nothing like being on the cutting edge...



MIAMI, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Cuban leader Fidel Castro has long prided himself on Cuba's doctors and free public health care system, but that system seems to have let him down after he fell ill in July , U.S.-based doctors said on Tuesday.

Based on a report in Tuesday's edition of Spain's El Pais newspaper, the doctors -- who have no first-hand knowledge of Castro's condition -- said Castro had received questionable or even botched care at the hands of health experts on his communist-ruled island.

"It's not a good story. Too bad they didn't send him to Miami for surgery," said Dr. Charles Gerson, a clinical professor of medicine in the gastroenterology division of New York's Mt. Sinai School of Medicine.

For those that believe in Karma... I believe Fidel has received the prescribed dose.


For those that are merely conspiratorial in mindset, perhaps not everyone in the OR was as loyal as Ronald Reagan's surgeon:



Shortly before surgery to remove the bullet, which barely missed his heart, Reagan remarked to the surgical team, "Please tell me you're all Republicans." The head surgeon, liberal Democrat Joseph Giordano, replied, "Mr. President, today we are all Republicans."

Maybe the precept of "first, do no harm" has taken new meaning.

Unless, and here's a conspiracy theory for you all, chavez decides to also take over cuba and merge it with the new cuba - venezuela. Think about it. chavez would probably think he was doing them all a favor by 'preserving the revolution' of his mentor fidel.

But would the U.S. let that kind of thing happen without stepping in to try and prevent it?

Think about it. It's not that far fetched an idea ...
