Former Uruguayan President Mujica’s Health “Improving Slowly,” Wife Says

MONTEVIDEO – Former Uruguayan President Jose Mujica’s health “is improving very slowly” as he recovers from imbalances in his blood levels, his wife, Sen. Lucia Topolansky, said on Thursday.

The 82-year-old Mujica’s condition “is improving and he underwent a number of tests because he had some irregular levels,” Topolansky told Radio Carve.

Mujica was hospitalized for 36 hours and doctors prescribed a week of rest.

Mujica, who governed Uruguay from 2010 to 2015 and is currently a senator, was hospitalized last weekend, underwent a series of tests and was released.

Dr. Raquel Pannone, Mujica’s primary care physician, told EFE that the politician was in “stable condition,” adding that the former president had not had “a serious event, but a temporary ailment.”

Doctors considered the possibility that Mujica was “suffering from an autoimmune disease, a type of condition that is difficult to diagnose, but it was not clearly determined what affected him,” Pannone said.
