Pope Francis is still experiencing breathing difficulties and lung inflammation, but his condition is stable and he does not have a temperature, the Vatican announced on Wednesday. He is also still receiving antibiotic therapy.
After having to postpone his activities due to a sick episode late last week, the pope had a CT scan at a hospital in Rome. The test found the inflammation but ruled out pneumonia.
As a young man in his native Argentina, Pope Francis had a portion of one of his lungs removed.
