Pope Francis is awake and breathing alone


The day after surgery, the Vatican reports that the 84-year-old Pope Francis is recovering well.

“His Holiness is awake and breathing autonomously”, can be read in the brief note issued this Monday by the press office of the Holy See, according to which a hospitalization of about seven days is foreseen, if there are no complications.

The intestinal surgical intervention, performed at Policlínica Gemelli, a Catholic teaching hospital in Rome, “involved a left hemicolectomy and lasted about three hours”, explains the same text.

This was the pope’s first known hospitalization since he was elected top leader of the Catholic Church in 2013.
