Argentine president said to be doing well after brain surgery

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentina’s presidential spokesman says Cristina Fernandez is in good spirits after successful surgery to remove fluid from the surface of her brain.

Alfredo Scoccimarro said Tuesday that Fernandez is recovering in her hospital room and has thanked her doctors as well as supporters gathered outside who have been praying for her.

He says “the operation went very well” and that the next announcement about her health will come at midday Wednesday.

Hospital doctors report that the president’s condition is “evolving favorably” after they removed a blot clot pressuring the right side of her brain.
