BUENOS AIRES, Argentina —

The doctors who removed a blood clot from the brain of Argentina's president say she's improving without complications. But they are giving few details.

Wednesday's three-sentence report says Cristina Fernandez's vital signs are "normal," her spirits are "very good" and she'll begin eating later Wednesday.

Her spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro appeared briefly and added only that she slept well and "sends a big kiss to all the Argentines."

The announcement did nothing to answer questions about how long Argentines will be without their charismatic leader in charge.
