Doctors siphoned blood from beneath the skull of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez on Tuesday, relieving pressure on her brain two months after she suffered an unexplained head injury.

Buenos Aires Gov. Daniel Scioli confirmed that the operation concluded and said Fernandez was recovering from anesthesia inside one of Argentina’s top cardiology hospitals.

“We have received first word that the president has come out of surgery and is recovering from anesthesia,” Scioli announced. “If God desires it, she’s going to be back with us very soon, fully functioning.”

“Now we’re waiting for the doctors’ report,” he added, wishing her a rapid recovery.
