Pope Francis at Gemelli for ‘scheduled checks’

The Pope has been at the Gemelli since this afternoon for some previously scheduled checks.

The Pontiff could spend a few days in the hospital. As far as we know, the staff closest to the Pope – including the security system – has been mobilized to spend the night in the university hospital. In addition to an interview the Pope had scheduled at the Vatican this afternoon, at the moment the audiences with the Pope scheduled for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow would also have been cancelled.
Francesco is located in the apartment on the tenth floor, so-called “dei Papi”, which he already used for the ten-day hospitalization relating to the colon operation he underwent on 4 July 2021, and previously used several times also by Giovanni Paolo II.

According to what is learned from medical sources, all the tests that Pope Francis had to undergo at the Gemelli Polyclinic have already been completed. There would be no heart problems and respiratory tests would be done. The situation, according to the doctors, would not cause concern.

The chest CT he underwent would have given a negative result and this element is evaluated with general relief by the entourage. According to what has been learned the Pope, who this morning at the usual Wednesday general audience had appeared smiling only a little tired when he was lifted from his wheelchair to go to the papal seat, he was taken to the polyclinic by ambulance.
