In a press conference just given at Hadassa Ain Kerem the news was announced that Ariel Sharon was rushed to hospital when he was reportedly feeling unwell. He has been hospitalized tonight at 11PM. He suffered a “Significant Stroke” and will have to under go surgery. A short time ago the legal team has transferred authority of government to Ehud Olmeret as Sharon will be placed under full unaesthetic. Sharon was due to go through a procedure to repair a heart defect tomorrow.
In a second announcement a few minutes ago, Ariel Sharon has gone into surgery.
After an MRI exam the prognosis of hospital staff was that Atiel Sharon suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. He will undergo surgery immediately.
The feeling is that this is a high risk surgery and there exists a significant risk to his life.
I wish him well and hope the surgery is a success.
In a phone interview on Channel 10 TV News a hospital source claimed “stroke was massive”. The commentary speaks of the severity of the stroke and the low chance of recovery. It seems that the damage done will prevent him from returning to office in the short term.

Ariel Sharon is still in surgery and it’s late. I remembered a story I read recently about Ariel Sharon.
In a recent staff meeting Ariel Sharon received a favorite dish from an employee’s mother. He enjoyed it so much that he called and thanked her in person. It has nothing to do with all this. I was never a big supporter, actually opponent would probably be right. But I got used to him. Too many balls in the air for him to just take time out like this.
Ehud Olmert is now the official Prime Minister. The security service in charge of VIP security has set up outside Ehud’s home in Jerusalem. He is now the most protected political figure in Israel….Today was the day “Kadima” received its official paper work, finally giving it a legal identity. An identity that tonight is in hospital under going extreme surgery.
Good Night Ariel – Feel Better.
