Doctors begin discussions on Sharon's condition

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's medical team began discussions early Sunday morning to determine when to begin bringing the prime minister out of a medically induced coma. Bringing him out of the coma is key to assessing how much brain damage he has suffered since a massive stroke last week. Hospital officials said that an official announcement about Sharon's condition would be made on Sunday afternoon. Sharon's chances of surviving are very high, but cognitive impairment is assured, Channel 2 television quoted one of his surgeons as saying.
