Former president Lee Teng-hui’s (李登輝) condition has stabilized
after he had a minor stroke, but he is to remain hospitalized under observation, Lee’s office said yesterday.
“Lee was sent to the Taipei Veterans General Hospital in the early hours of Friday after experiencing numbness in his right hand,” Lee’s office director Wang Yan-chun (王燕軍) said in a statement issued yesterday afternoon.
Following a series of examinations, Wang said the hospital concluded that Lee’s symptoms were caused by an embolism that occurred in the small peripheral arteries of the left hemisphere of his brain.
