Recovery boosted as Castro eats again: Venezuela

CARACAS (Reuters) – Cuban President Fidel Castro’s health is improving because he is now eating, the ambassador to Cuba from ally Venezuela said on Thursday, without making clear when Castro had been unable to eat

The operation meant Castro, 80, initially could not eat, but there also were media reports that at the end of last year his health worsened again and he had to be drip-fed.

“Fidel is improving progressively. The problem is that originally he could not take in foods but now he is taking in foods and that has improved his health significantly,” Ambassador Ali Rodriguez told Venezuelan state television.

It was not clear if he was referring to July or to a later relapse…

Chavez said last month Castro had put on weight and that his health was improving

I guess Mr. Chavez was lying to us when he assured us how well Mr. Castro was.
