Ohhhh…owwww. That looks painful, Evo! But will you take your doctor’s advice?
Translation mine.Heh…true to form, Evo is choosing to tough it out rather than rest. Even on doctors’ orders, this hard-working leader won’t quit. Admirable, but I’d say he’s earned a time-out. And besides, he’s got Alvaro García Linera…who’s no slouch either. Evo, listen to your docs and delegate for a change!
Specialists in orthopedics and physiotherapy recommended today that Bolivian president Evo Morales take up to ten days of bed rest, since he injured a leg playing soccer on the weekend.The doctors suggested the rest period after an accident in which the inner front surface of the president’s right leg received a violent impact from a sudden collision with Daniel Cartagena, a player for the Alcaldía, in a friendly match.After evaluating the president, Dr. Robert Baldellón remarked on a painful limp in the president’s gait, indicating a functional limitation. The president, who was at work today, is taking inti-inflammatory medication and applying ice to reduce the pain and regain mobility.
