Seve Ballesteros making a recovery
Seve is on the improve after his third operation in Madrid-- Former three times British Open golf champion is recovering after undergoing three operations on a brain tumor. Ballesteros was diagnosed with a tumor on Oct. 12 after suffering dizzy spells and was operated on two days later in the La Paz Hospital in Madrid. Complications meant that he needed two further operations, with the final operation lasting for six and a half hours last Saturday. He is currently being kept under sedation in La Paz's intensive care unit, but the latest communique released by the hospital last Wednesday had promising news. "The patient Severiano Ballesteros has shown favorable progress in his neurological situation, although he still needs to remain under the control of the Intensive Care unit," said the statement. Fifty-one-year-old Ballesteros retired from professional golf in 2007 after a career in which he won the British Open on three occasions and the US Masters twice. Seve was so great to watch and an absolute joy for fans......hope he makes it!
