Castro says the worst is over

HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuban leader Fidel Castro said the worst is over and he is recovering well from intestinal surgery one month ago despite losing 41 lbs (18.6 kg), a statement published on Tuesday said.

"One can say that the most critical moment is behind us. Today I am recovering at a satisfactory pace," he said in the statement published by the government newspaper Granma's Web site, with photographs of him reading in a rocking chair.
