Argentine President Cristina Fernandez Has Successful Surgery

Argentine president Cristina Fernandez was recently sworn in for her second term as president of Argentina, and for those of us marveling at the rainbow community human rights progress in that nation we saw her landslide reelection victory in October as great news. 

The international community was alarmed to hear not long after her inauguration that during a routine checkup just before Christmas a papillary carcinoma was discovered that necessitated the removal of her thyroid gland in a 3.5 hour operation.

"The surgery on President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was carried out without any complication," presidential spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro told reporters, adding that she will remain hospitalized for about 72 hours.

Her doctors stated that she has a better than 90% chance of recovery in this case, which is welcome news to Argentina and the international community concerned about her.
