Despite claims on the radio by Ariel Sharon's longtime friend and lawyer Dov Weisglas that the former prime minister - hospitalized for nearly four years at Sheba Medical Center - is "in a stage before awakening from his coma," his personal physician said Thursday that there was no truth to it. Dr. Shlomo Segev told The Jerusalem Post that only Sharon's son, daughter-in-law and the medical staff see him, and not Weisglas. Sharon is in a "static vegetative state" with severe brain damage and in a coma, but not a very deep coma that would prevent him from opening his eyes and even following things with them, Segev said.
