Brazilian media is reporting that ailing Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez will make an emergency trip to Brazil after allegedly suffering intestinal burns during his radiation treatment in Cuba.
Chávez, who in June of last year revealed that Cuban doctors had removed a cancerous tumor from his abdominal region, has been going back-and-forth from the island nation for treatment. The Associated Press reported earlier on Thursday that the Venezuelan leader had returned to his country on Wednesday night from radiation treatment in Cuba.
"So far, fortunately there hasn't been any adverse reaction to the treatment," Chavez said Wednesday, according to The Associated Press. "All the exams that have been carried out have shown positive results of physical recovery."
However, the Brazilian daily O Globo reported a rumor from Venezuelan journalist Nelson Bocaranda that Chávez could be headed to the hospital Sirio e Libanês in Sao Paulo.

” That guy is dead.”
I remember reading that many medical experts were wondering why Chavez did not originally go to Brazil, who has outstanding cancer medical treatments and facilities, as compared to Cuba?
Does he still smell the sulfur?
The most recent surgery had to be done by a team of Soviet surgeons because the Cubans messed up first time around. The Soviet team gave him 2 years or less. I’m going with “much less”.
I suspect that where he's going, it will be way too warm to do much, anyway. Tyrants always fear death, because, like the devil and demons, they believe. And tremble.
