President Obama is most relieved.
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday that he’s improving after undergoing a second round of chemotherapy in Cuba to treat his cancer, and boasted that he’s never felt healthier.
“I could stand here talking for five hours,” said Chavez, one of the world’s most loquacious leaders.
The socialist leader, who returned from Cuba on Saturday, said he doesn’t know yet if he will need a third round of chemotherapy. He said his medical team also will decide if he needs a second round of radiation treatment.
“I’m doing very well. In fact, I’ve never been better,” Chavez told journalists after a meeting at the presidential palace with Maria Emma Mejia, secretary-general of South America’s UNASUR organization.
“It’s not serious,” he said of his illness.
