Fidel Castro's older brother Ramon said his brother is recovering well from surgery six months ago, joining his other brother Raul in a growing number of upbeat assessments of the ailing leader's health. "He is doing very well, protected by the socialist saints!" a beaming 82-year-old Ramon said Friday after lunch with Florida cattleman John Parke Wright, a good friend and frequent visitor to the island. "Fidel is recovering well," added Ramon, who looks remarkably like Fidel - down to the now-wispy white beard. "All of us brothers are very resilient." Ramon spent his life in agriculture and ranching and never held any major government positions.
