A Final Comment

On December 12, Maduro said Chavez was recovering after undergoing six hours of successful surgery. "It has been a complex operation," he explained.

"We have been through complex moments of tension, but fortunately our commander's gigantic humanity once again demonstrates its fortitude."

"We want to thank the Venezuelan people for all the love they dedicated so this operation was completed correctly and successfully."

"We can say the president has beaten the first obstacle and now, with his medical team, he will go on recuperating." He'll receive "special treatments," he added.

He addressed Chavez directly, saying:

"You have to come back. And we wait for you here, your children."

Chavez's post-operative period will last at least several days. It's unclear when he'll return to Venezuela. Perhaps it'll be before yearend.

Chavistas held a prayer vigil during his surgery. They held posters, joined hands, and sang hymns. One participant said, "We ask God to let him live."

Another feared Venezuelans might lose everything if he dies. Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa was with him in Havana. He called his operation "very delicate." 

"He's passing through one of the hardest moments of his life. Our heart and our solidarity are with a historic president."

Since taking office in February 1999, he did so much for so many. Americans can't imagine benefits Venezuelans get. Hopefully he'll recover fully. Millions of supporters want nothing less.
