Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital director Prof. Shlomo Mor-Yosef announced Monday evening that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's medical condition remained serious, but that initial indications were positive as the prime minister was slowly brought out of his medically-induced coma. Sharon was still connected to a breathing machine, but was breathing on his own, Mor-Yosef said. Additionally, his vital signs remained stable, except for an increase in blood pressure, which Mor-Yosef emphasized was a positive sign. Throughout the day, doctors conducted tests to determine Sharon's capability to respond to pain. He reportedly responded to pain with movements of his right hand and foot, motions that became more significant throughout the day as the level of his anaesthetics was reduced.
