why Pope Benedict XVI is undergoing surgery ?
A hospital spokesman says Pope Benedict XVI is undergoing surgery after breaking his right wrist in a fall during his vacation in the Italian Alps. Tiziano Trevisan, a spokesman at the Umberto Parini hospital in Aosta, says surgeons were operating Friday on the wrist to reduce the fracture, a procedure to realign the broken bone fragments. He said they were giving 82-year-old Benedict “light sedation,” though heavier anesthesia may be given as the surgery progresses. A Vatican statement says the pope fell in his room in a nearby chalet overnight and despite the accident, celebrated Mass and had breakfast before going to the hospital. Sources: http://www.google.
