Sharon doing well after stroke

From the BBC:

Israeli PM Ariel Sharon has spent a quiet night in hospital after suffering a minor stroke and his condition is "good", officials have said. A statement from Mr Sharon's office said he would be examined on Monday morning to "decide on the continuation of his treatment". An official from his office said Mr Sharon, 77, was walking and talking. Mr Sharon was taken to hospital in Jerusalem after complaining of feeling unwell late on Sunday. Hospital officials said later on Sunday that the prime minister was conscious and his condition not life-threatening.
Do you think that this will signal a halt / slowing of Sharon's political aims or will he plough on regardless? I think that he'll throw caution to the wind and press forward with this plans for Kadima. I've always considered Sharon an arrogant man and this new party is his baby, so I can't see him handing the reins over to anyone else.
Looking at how obese Sharon is, and his stressful lifestyle, his having a stroke is unsurprising. What is unusual is that the Israeli government have not blamed the Palestinians and bulldozed some houses in retaliation.
Cannot see him slowing down unless actual physical condition post-stroke forces it on him. His whole career has been one of bull-at-a-gate style anway so why change now.
Like most of us fat bstards, he knows the risks and lives life accordingly.
Well, having lost someone to a 2nd stroke , who wouldn't heed advice and slow down , Sharon needs to know the reaper is sharpening his blade.

Never thought I'd ever say this , but hang in there Sharon , as the alternative could be very unpleasant.
