Further improvement in Sharon condition
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon moved his left hand, Hadassah Hospital director Professor Shlomo Mor Yosef said Tuesday. On Monday, the ailing Israeli PM reacted to pain for the first time since he was sedated and was also able to move his right limbs. On Tuesday, he also reacted to stimulation of his left side and slightly moved his left arm and leg.
Mor Yosef said that Sharon's breathing, blood pressure, pulse, bladder functioning and intracranial pressure is considered normal. "This is without the assistance of medications to help his blood pressure. The prime minister's body temperature is also normal," he added.
Early Tuesday, a Hadassah hospital spokesman said the prime minister was still in serious but stable condition.
