Chavez: I'm Doing Much Better

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said over the weekend that his latest medical tests indicated that he was doing much better than previously thought. He said that the state of his health was good. “The tests were conducted this morning and already the results are in, and they are good,” Chavez said Saturday.

Recent reports said that Chavez was dying from the cancer that has plagued him in recent months, and that he had less than a year to live.
