Cuffie’s wife: he’s making progress in the hospital

Minister of Public Administration and Communications remains in hospital with doctors happy with how he is progressing, his wife Hermia Tyson-Cuffie told Newsday yesterday.

She thanked members of the public for their ardent prayers and their text messages of well-wishing for Cuffie's recovery. Tyson-Cuffie did not give details of Cuffie's medical episode that the Office of Prime Minister had said he had faced on Tuesday, but she told Newsday that he has a strong heart.

She said little had changed since a statement had been issued on Wednesday by the Office of Prime Minister, saying, “That remains the state of play. He is doing a lot of work that they are comfortable with. The hospital remains happy with how he is progressing, and I get a lot of joy from that.”

Tyson-Cuffie asked for people to keep praying, saying prayers and text messages to her and her husband have been very encouraging.

“I realise my husband is well-loved.”

Asked if she was saying what his medical episode was such as a cardiovascular incident (such as heart attack or stroke), she replied, “The Minister’s heart is in good condition. We encourage people to take care of their health.”

Saying he lives a very healthy lifestyle of walking six days a week, and of no meat nor alcohol, Tyson-Cuffie blamed this episode on just “the luck of the draw.”

“He is someone who walks a lot and eats right and that kind of thing. That’s the luck of the draw. He doesn’t drink, doesn’t eat meat, doesn’t eat fish. He’s a vegetarian. He exercises six out of seven days, and is very, very moderate in his eating. He’s a very, very careful person. Sometimes it’s the luck of the draw.”
