Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's condition remains critical, according to a statement early Thursday from the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital where he is being treated.
"The prime minister's condition remains critical but stable," the statement said. "His heart rhythm is regular. In the evening he will undergo a routine CT scan."
Sharon remains unconscious a week after suffering a massive stroke. Doctors have been weaning him from anesthetics, to see if he will come out of the coma.
