Tutu back in hospital but ‘in good spirits’
LEAH Tutu was by her husband Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu’s side when he returned to a Cape Town hospital yesterday, following surgery last week.
The family’s spokesperson, Roger Friedman, said Tutu (84) was readmitted as a precaution after his surgical wound “had shown signs of infection”.
A source close to the family said that Leah and other family members were with the struggle icon and Nobel peace prize winner as he continued his recovery, and that despite the health scare he was in good spirits.
The archbishop underwent the surgical procedure 10 days ago to address the cause of recurring infections resulting from past treatment received for prostate cancer.
“The family is very grateful for the ongoing prayers and support,” said Friedman. — Sapa
