Former Israeli PM Sharon Suffering From Vital Organ Failure
Times of Israel – Former prime minister Ariel Sharon is suffering from vital organ failure after his condition deteriorated significantly in recent weeks, Sheba Medical Center director Zeev Rotstein said on Thursday. It was a first statement to the press by hospital personnel since a spokesman put out a laconic statement Wednesday saying the comatose leader’s condition had taken a turn for the worse.
On Wednesday, doctors said Sharon, 85, who has been in a vegetative state since 2006, was suffering from renal failure that could lead to multiple organ system failure and death. On Thursday morning, Rotstein confirmed that Sharon, who has been hospitalized at Sheba for seven years, was suffering from failure of multiple “organs that are vital to life.”
