Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley is a relieved man after his cardiologist delivered good news saying that there is no need for heart surgery.
A smiling Rowley posted the good news just after 11 pm Tuesday on his Facebook page.
Alongside a photo of him and his doctor in California, Rowley said: "All smiles at lunch with my cardiologist. Today (Thursday) I was told there is no need for surgery."
Rowley said, however, that he will remain under observation for a few more days and return home to T&T soon.
Rowley extended a heartfelt thank you to everyone who prayed and sent well wishes to him and his family during the period he has been in the United States for tests.
