Fifteen minutes after 2021 started, Zulemita Menem published a photo and a message with which she hinted at the happiness of starting the year with her father, Carlos Menem, who is still hospitalized in the Los Arcos sanatorium in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo.
“We beat you 2020”, put on his Twitter account Zulemita next to a photo in which his hand is seen next to that of the former President. According to the latest information released by the family, Menem remains in an induced coma and has been hospitalized since December 15 for a urinary infection after he also felt an acceleration in his heart rate. In the image you can see the intertwined hands of the father and his daughter in the Sanatorium room.
Last week, in the middle of the debate on the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy (IVE) bill, Zulemita regretted that her father could not be in the Senate to vote against the legalization of abortion.
Since Menem had to be hospitalized, there was speculation about how he would tip the balance in the vote to legalize abortion, especially when until the last moment the discussion turned vote by vote in a scenario of parity.
The former head of state, who this year was hospitalized on two other occasions – in June for a picture of pneumonia that forced him to be transferred to the intensive care unit, and at the end of July to carry out various studies – turned 90 on July 2 past, while he was also hospitalized.
The latest news from spokesmen close to the Peronist leader’s inner circle, his medication was lowered, “he had some favorable reactions, he urinates better, his sedatives are lowering and he is stabilized.”
Thus, the former president remains hospitalized in Los Arcos, accompanied by his ex-wife Zulema Yoma and his daughter Zulema Menem.
The Peronist leader has a mandate as senator for La Rioja until 2023 and until before the first admission he had remained active. In fact, he had participated in the virtual sessions of the Upper House of the Nation.
