Skip to comments.Fidel Castro suffered a stroke, Venezuelan doctor says

Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and his state of health is so precarious that he has trouble feeding, speaking and recognizing people, said a Venezuelan physician who assured El Nuevo Herald that he has access to firsthand sources and information.
He suffered an embolic stroke and recognizes absolutely no one, said José Marquina, a respected doctor who in the past has claimed to have direct information about the illness affecting President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.
The people with a condition of this nature have difficulty eating and, of course, they end up with total deficit in their neurologic capacities.
Rumors about Castros health have circulated consistently in social networks and the media. But the speculations intensified recently, to the point that word spread that he had died and that the Cuban government would make an official announcement to that effect.
Castro was last seen in public in March, during the visit to Cuba of Pope Benedict XVI. Since June, he has not written his opinion columns, called Reflections. He did not send any message or congratulation to Chávez for his recent election victory.
Castro receives no therapy to improve his condition because his neurological state does not allow it, Marquina added. Marquina described Castros condition as very close to a neurovegetative state.

Old Fuzzy Face was last seen in public in March ... has since returned to the Socialist Worker's Paradise to receive the same outstanding free medical care available to all citizens ... upon which ObamaCare is modeled!
Sounds like we could be holding a celebration soon
Kill a Commie for Mommie.
A stroke will do, it’s too bad they had to suffer under the dictator for so long.
Someone needs to hook his testicles up to a car battery, to see if it helps with his cognitive awareness.
Tough cookies, Fidel.
After he expires, maybe they will embalm and in put him in a glass case. Isn’t that were big time commies go when they die?
Nov 6 celebration 1 when Romney wins
Then another celebration soon after would be nice.
Yeah right, as if Castro is subject to the same medical malpractice as the proles; he no doubt receives the best possible treatment that other peoples’ money can buy.
I would have wished a more unpleasant end to Castro like bone cancer but any end to the monster is a blessing on humanity.
Hey, some lucky guy picked ‘ol Fidel in Howie’s new Death Pool today! What prize will that guy win? ;-)
Please somebody that knows how to do it...

........very close to a neurovegetative state...........
Why yes, I totally agree with your cognitive test.
It's always best to start with a car battery before proceeding to the wall socket.
OK, is it too soon to start a death pool on Fidel and Hugo? That is, which assumes room temperature first thanks to the mercies and miracles of socialist medicine?
God has installed an automatic antiseptic in civilizations and governments. It is called time.
Sorry to see Mr Castro leave this world without having a real conversion to Christ. The next life will be so much less fun.
He`s not totally dead, but bury him anyway... he`s close enough.
That way he can get a taste of what some of his many thousands of victims went through.
POS can`t go room temp soon enough.
Someday, hopefully soon, we`ll read of the same happening to George Soros. I want that POS to suffer.
Yes sir! We should have a big party when that turd flushes.
Jimmy Carter is on his way with flowers and a fruit basket.
Time wounds all heels.
And King Barry will be there for the funeral.
How many times have we heard that he’s about to make a permanent trip to the fiery south? Yet he’s still here and kicking. I’ll believe it when we get an official statement of his death.
I wonder if Fidel, who is supposedly this benevolent communist who cares about the poor and equality, is being cared for in this dump like the citizens of his country:
Didn’t think so.
Call me after the funeral, once the casket is six feet below ground and covered with dirt. Fidel has been dead or near dead for nearly all my life.
This must be our October surprise, and it’s a good one.
One Commie is the be voted out of office on November 6 while another Commie is about to assume room temperature.
LOL. That’d do it.
I hope he has a long and painful death. Adios mofo.
That icehole is still alive?
It’s been a great couple of days :)
In anticipation of Castro’s demise, Satan is stoking the fires in hell and Jimmy Carter is packing his bags to attend the funeral.
The fact he is still living is tribute to his irrelevancy
Amen, the man is as evil as they come.
What a stroke of luck, by jove!!!
Sounds like Cuba may have a real chance of “Hope and Change”
thats LEAVING communism vs going FORWARD into it.
I know one of the things the Coast Guard used to consider as a potential “surge” event was the death of Castro and the potential for many, many refugees taking the opportunity to try to get out. That was before Castro established a succession plan by making his brother the titular big cheese so maybe it’s less a concern now. But could you imagine how energized the Cuban community would be if Castro dies and desperate refugees in large numbers are being scooped out of the ocean and sent back to Cuba?
how many times can an evil SoB of a despot of a dictator die?
Come on down, You’re the next contestant on
‘As the Corpse Rots’
Ya’d think the media would wise up eventually..
What am I saying? ;-]
I invite you to learn to post images. It's easy, and all kinds of fun:
The song was written 6 years ago when I thought he was a goner. Hopefully, now is the time.
This story desperately needs a medical editor. I suppose he could have had a cerebral embolism and was anti-coagulated into a hemorrhage. Otherwise, it was either a cerebral hemorrhage or an embolism.
