Ariel Sharon is Out of Emergency Surgery

February 11, 2006 - Posted at 1:12 p.m. CST

JERUSALEM (AP) _ Ariel Sharon's aide says the Israeli leader is

out of emergency surgery after part of his intestine was removed.

Sharon was rushed into surgery today when doctors realized his

life was in danger.

An abdominal scan showed his digestive tract had been severely

damaged. It also raised the possibility of necrosis, or death of

the tissue.

Sharon suffered a massive stroke January Fourth and has been

unconscious ever since. A C-T scan of his brain earlier this week

showed that he remained in serious but stable condition.

Sharon had a feeding tube inserted in his stomach February

First, an indication that his doctors were thinking in terms of

long-term care for the 77-year-old leader.

The C-T scans have been used to assess bleeding and swelling in

Sharon's brain. According to past hospital statements, there have

been no changes in the results of the scan in recent weeks.
