Nelson Mandela gave everyone a scare over the weekend when reports surfaced the 94 year old former South African president was hospitalized. Some media outlets even reported Mandela to be growing frail in the past year.
But rest ashore. Mandela is doing quite well according to new reports from the South African government.
President Jacob Zuma visited Mandela and says he is “comfortable, and in good care”.
“I think he has had a restful night, the doctors are comfortable about it, they are continuing monitoring,” said Mac Maharaj, Mr Zuma’s spokesman and a former fellow prisoner with Mr Mandela.
The tests seem to be annual tests expected of a man Mandela’s age.
No further details were released on which hospital Mandela had been staying.
May he continue to be in good health.

As many of you know, 5 years ago I beat breast cancer. I’ve always been a fighter, and with all of your prayers and support, a winner.
Sometimes the treatment for cancer can cause other serious medical problems. Today, I want to let you know that I’ve been diagnosed with MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome. It’s a disease of the blood and bone marrow and was once known as preleukemia.
My doctors tell me I’m going to beat this — and I know it’s true.
If you Google MDS, you may find some scary stuff, including statistics that my doctors insist don’t apply to me. They say I’m younger and fitter than most people who confront this disease and will be cured.
Today, I will start what is known as pre-treatment _______READMORE
Sheryl Crow has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. In a recent interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal the singer says, “I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. I haven’t really talked about it. In November I found out I have a brain tumor.” Fortunately Sheryl may not have much to worry about. She adds, “but it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it.”
A rep for the star also adds, ” She has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. The tumor is a meningioma; it’s typically benign and develops from the protective linings of the brain and spinal cord. She is doing great and is healthy and happy.”
Although not the best news to receive we’re happy it’s not life threatening. It was just six years ago the singer overcame a breast cancer diagnosis. It’s not clear whether she will pursue surgery. We wish her well.
