Fidel Castro suffered a stroke, Venezuelan doctor says
The Miami Herald ^ | October 18, 2012 | Juan Carlos Chavez

A Naples doctor said former Cuban leader Fidel Castro is near ‘a neurovegetative state’ after suffering a stroke.

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.

Wait, wait, wait. I thought Cuba had the best healthcare system? Even Hugo Chavez has a Cuban doctor.

Great, so if castro croaks under barry’s watch, he’ll claim credit for that too.

When a story like this comes out, I think of the line from The Godfather: “He’s been dying from the same heart attack for the last 20 years.”

My grandmother always said, only the good die young. I expect Fidel will hang on awhile longer.

Does this mean I may yet get a chance to drink the champagne I’ve had in the ‘fridge against the day of his demise.

I hope it’s still good after all these years.

Kind of interesting that both Castro and Chavez go to each other’s countries to get treatment.

Lenin wishes he had so many doubles to carry on his agenda.

Fidel ‘died’ the day he assumed power.. along with dreams of prosperity for generations of Cubans

At his peril. His lib buddies adore Castro. Would be a hoot if Castro were to die just in time for the debate on foreign policy. It would be a hoot to watch Bambi pay homage to him.
