In a recent report, it has been confirmed that Broadcaster Paul Holmes is stable now after an open-heart surgery. It is known and even has been confirmed by Holmes' employer Newstalk ZB that he was put into induced coma after the surgery at Auckland City Hospital earlier this week.
Though his condition remains serious, his condition was reported to be stable. However, the family has expressed thanks to all those who had sent numerous letters and emails wishing him quick recovery. Moreover, doctors have confirmed that he is expected to return home after he fully recovers in the hospital.
"This gives his body a bit more time to heal. His doctors say this can sometimes be expected after such an operation. He remains in a serious but stable condition”, said Newstalk ZB, while confirming that he is likely to stay in coma for this weekend.
It was told that he was identified with a heart disorder - hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which makes the blood to move out of the heart all the more difficult and that’s what pushed the need for the surgery to be performed on the
62-year-old Q+A host and radio broadcaster. It was then he was shifted to Auckland City Hospital from Hawke's Bay.
