President still stable

After undergoing emergency heart surgery earlier this week, President Raimonds Vejonis' health condition remains stable, however, it is not known when he will leave the hospital's intensive care unit, LETA was informed by Pauls Stradins Clinical University spokeswoman Lasma Sile on Saturday.

Vejonis' overall health situation has been described as stable. However, the president is still in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Sile said that Vejonis will certainly remain in the intensive care unit Saturday, and doctors will decide Sunday whether or not to transport him to the hospital's Cardiology Center.

As reported, President Vejonis is stable after heart surgery he underwent on Wednesday. The president has awoken and can talk with his doctors.

Vejonis was taken to Gailezers Hospital in Riga on Monday to be treated for what his spokespeople described as a virus infection. Later, though, he was transferred to Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital where doctors performed the heart surgery, replacing one of his heart valves with an artificial one.
