PALMA City Councillor for Culture, Carme Feliu, who suffered a stroke on March 6, yesterday held her first press conference since being admitted to hospital. “It's been a miracle, thank you doctors, thank you modern technology,” she said addressing the media at the Clinica Rotger where she has been treated.
Smiling, Feliu said she felt “perfect” and that, after a few weeks of rest and relaxation at home with her family, she is looking forward to returning to work, albeit “step by step,” and not until she is given the all clear by doctors. Head of the clinic's intensive care unit, Jaume Berguedá, said that Feliu is no longer in danger of suffering a relapse, although her sight may suffer, but the doctor said that too will recover eventually. Feliu was rushed to hospital 27 days ago after suffering a stroke at her council office.
Since then she has undergone three operations and in the early hours of March 9, the medical team were seriously concerned for her condition “the situation was critical, some serious decisions had to be taken” Fernando Rotger, director of the clinic, said. Feliu, who described events of the past month as “something out of an American movie,” will have to undergo one final operation in a few months time.
Accompanied by her husband and parents, the city councillor found it hard to hide her emotions yesterday and publicly thanked the clinic's doctors and nurses. “I feel fine, stress never bothers me, although these thing make you reflect on certain things, such as spending more time with the family,” Carme Feliu said.
