In an excerpt from an interview with Spanish radio COPE, which will be broadcast in full on Wednesday, Francisco said: “A nurse saved my life, a man with a lot of experience. It’s the second time in my life that a nurse has happened to save my life.. The first was in the year 57.”
The first time was an Italian nun who, unlike the doctors, changed the medicine she was going to give the future pope, who was then a young man in theology school, to cure him of pneumonia.
According to the radio, the interview also deals with speculation about his health and even his possible resignation – a rumor spread by an ultra-conservative Italian newspaper – to which the Pope replied: “When the Pope gets sick, a breeze or hurricane blows out.”
Francisco underwent surgery on July 4 Due to “severe diverticulitis with signs of sclerosing diverticulitis” in which part of the colon has been removed.
In recent events, Francisco appears to have made a full recovery, although in a meeting with Catholic lawmakers he began his speech by apologizing for not being able to speak standing up because he was still “in the postoperative period”.
