The Prime Minister received the most appropriate treatment for the medical condition in which he found himself. He was treated by the best experts at Hadassah and we made every effort to consult with experts from other places.
The prime minister is sedated and on a respirator. One could say his condition is grave.
The prime minister has had a CT scan that showed the cerebral hemorrhaging has stopped. The prime minister is now being transferred to the neurosurgical intensive care unit. In the unit, he will be treated, observed and cared for.

From the standpoint of his present condition, the situation is serious, the situation is stable, the situation is critical. But there is no immediate danger to the life of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
He is stable. All his signs are within normal limits but his condition is grave.
Part of the treatment of the prime minister, in order to preserve low pressure in the skull, is sedation and respiration for at least the next 24 hours.
Today's surgery didn't improve Sharon's health. It is important to note that the central problem of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is the lack of consciousness, not the problem of his intestine area.
We can't ask the prime minister how he's feeling, so the CT scan is the only way we can find out.
This treatment will last anything between 48 and 72 hours and then we will try to gradually wake the prime minister.
Every such incident does not improve the prime minister's chances of waking up. All possibilities remain open, but with each passing day, the chances are lower.
During the surgery the cranial pressure was released and some of the blood clots that remained from the previous surgery were drained. At the end of the operation there is no active bleeding.

The surgery proceeded with no complications . . . but . . . today's surgery didn't improve Sharon's health. Every such incident does not improve the prime minister's chances of waking up.
During surgery, the increased intracranial pressure was released, part of the blood clots that remained after the first operation were drained. At the end of the operation, there is no active bleeding and the intracranial pressure has returned to normal.
Any improvement in his condition won't be possible to determine until after the prime minister emerges from the coma.
As far as his current condition is concerned, his state is serious, stable... there is no immediate danger to the life of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
It is routine in hospitals and we observed no complications. But it is clear that the development is not a good sign for the health of the prime minister.
I must point out that, regarding the future, under the current circumstances it will not be possible.
In the morning, there was really immediate danger to his life, but now . . . (there is) no immediate danger.
The key problem is his lack of consciousness.
This is a lengthy process. It won't be in the coming hours. It will be at least 48 hours after the prime minister's emergence from surgery.
The diagnosis is a significant stroke. The prime minister has been anesthetized and is on a breathing device.
The central problem of Prime Minister Sharon is his unconsciousness. The stomach problem that was discovered overnight and today is in addition to the central problem.
