Pope Getting Voice And Breathing Therapy

Vatican says pope getting voice and breathing therapy

The Vatican says Pope John Paul is continuing to recover from his latest health crisis. It says the pope has had no complications after last week's operation and is getting breathing and voice therapy. He's said to be eating regularly and sitting in an arm chair. The brief medical update doesn't say how long the 84-year-old pope will remain in the hospital. He underwent surgery last week to insert a tube in his throat. Yesterday, John Paul skipped the weekly blessing for the first time in 26 years but appeared briefly at his hospital window just moments after a Vatican official read the pope's appeal for prayers.
