Spanish Bullfighter Improving After Near-Fatal Goring

AGUASCALIENTES, Mexico – Spanish bullfighter Jose Tomas remains in intensive care after being badly gored during a bullfight here last weekend, but is already talking and joking, his doctors said Monday.

“From a high risk of death he went to very serious and is now in delicate condition,” according to Dr. Juan Carlos Ramirez, one of the specialists treating Tomas at Hidalgo Hospital in the central Mexican city of Aguascalientes.

The physician said that Tomas’ progress is “much better” than expected.

Tomas, a superstar in the sport, was gored in the thigh last Saturday at the bullring in Aguascalientes.

The 34-year-old Madrid native is now able to breathe on his own, doctors told a press conference.

“There is no evidence of bleeding and the white blood cells determine there is no infection, so we’re happy about that,” Ramirez said when asked about the possibility of complications.

Jose Tomas began talking Sunday night and above all asked those treating him how he was doing.

“He’s smiling and is very agreeable and accessible,” said Ramirez, for whom the most “solemn” moment was when the matador was able to speak with his father.

For his part, the matador’s personal physician, Rogelio Perez Cano, who could also speak with him, said that Tomas began to remember what happened to him in the bullring.

“He has some vague memories, is aware of the goring, of some moments in the hospital and even of being taken to hospital, but he has some lapses,” the doctor said, adding that Jose Tomas is not aware of having experienced the most dangerous mishap of his career.

He believes it’s better that way, because “it makes his recovery easier from a psychological point of view,” though Jose Tomas is in good spirits “and even has a sense of humor.” EFE
