Latest on Chávez

According to this Reuters report, published today,

In a lengthy, dawn telephone chat with state TV, an unusually self-reflective Chavez said his operation last month in Cuba had removed a “baseball-size” tumor.

The threat of malignant cells spreading remained “latent” and needed robust treatment, he added.

“It will probably require known methods … that could be radiotherapy or chemotherapy to hit hard, with the cavalry, whatever latent possibility is there,” Chavez said.á

The president said he was undergoing organ-by-organ checks.

“I don’t want, I mustn’t give more details,” he said.

Qué será, será.
