The Vatican reveals the latest developments in the health of Pope Francis


The Vatican revealed the latest developments in the health of Pope Francis, Pope of the Vatican and head of the Catholic Church, after he underwent colon surgery, last Sunday.


The Vatican said in a statement, "Pope Francis ate breakfast, today, Tuesday, read newspapers and walked, while he continues to recover from intestinal surgery," according to the Russian Sputnik agency.


For his part, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni announced that the post-operative examinations were "good and normal", and the statement revealed that Pope Francis was sleeping well through the night after Sunday's surgery.


The Pope underwent a resection of the left hemisphere, and this is the first time that the Vatican has revealed details of the surgery.


Pope Francis was keen to reassure his followers from all over the world about his health condition after undergoing intestinal surgery, and wrote a tweet through his personal account on Twitter in Arabic, saying, “Like the citizens of Jesus, we are threatened by the danger of not knowing him, that an abstract and distant God does not interfere.” In our affairs it is more comfortable for us, but God has become a man: God is humble, kind, and hidden, and he has come close to us and lived our normal daily life.”



The Vatican had announced that Pope Francis was in stable condition after undergoing intestinal surgery, which was carried out under general anesthesia, and Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni announced that Pope Francis was admitted to hospital in Rome last Sunday afternoon for a “scheduled surgery” for the colon.
