Argentina's president to undergo surgery for brain hematoma
BUENOS AIRES (AP, REUTERS) - Argentine President Cristina Fernandez will undergo surgery on Tuesday relating to a subdural hematoma, or blood on the brain, her doctors said on Monday.
The President's condition may have come from hitting her head during a fall she took in August, although she was cleared by her doctors at the time, a presidential spokesman said.
Ms Fernandez returned to the hospital on Monday, presumably for more treatment of the head injury that prompted her doctors to order a month's rest.
Her caravan entered the Fundacion Favaloro as her Cabinet gathered without her for a speech by Vice-President Amado Boudou, who declared that her government "will continue while she gets the rest she deserves". Earlier on Monday, Mr Boudou and other top officials made a show of unity as they delivered some squad cars to the border police.
