Former Israeli PM Ariel Sharon’s condition worsens

OHMYGOSSIP — Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s already critical medical condition is deteriorating further as key bodily organs continue to decline, the hospital treating him said today (Jan 3), Todayonline mediates.

The 85-year-old Sharon, who has been in a coma for eight years after a devastating stroke incapacitated him at the peak of his political power, is fighting and is not in pain, said Dr Zeev Rotstein, the director of Tel Hashomer hospital near Tel Aviv.

Mr Sharon was one of Israel’s most iconic and controversial figures and his career stretched across Israel’s 65-year history.

Speaking to reporters today at the hospital, Dr Rotstein said Mr Sharon’s life remains in danger and that “there is a slow and gradual deterioration” in his condition along with “multi-organ failure”. Test results show Mr Sharon also has a blood infection, Dr Rotstein said.

The director refused to provide a prognosis but when asked if Mr Sharon will recover, “looking at the trend of deterioration, it doesn’t give us good signs for the future”.
