Michael Browne, the education minister, is said to be doing much better, weeks after he returned to the country from The Cayman Islands where he was treated for chest-related complications.
Chief of Staff Lionel Max Hurst provided an update of Browne’s condition during the post-Cabinet press conference on Thursday. He said the minister is resting at home, based on the recommendations of his doctors.
While he may be away from active duties, Browne took time on Wednesday to visit his Cabinet colleagues and was reportedly well-received.
“He has been advised by his doctors to take it a little easy. It is rest and continued use of medication that will help him to recover fully. If you look at him, he looks very masculine and ready for action,” Hurst said.
In late November, the minister drove himself to the Mount St John’s Medical Center because he was experiencing what he described as severe chest pains. Upon his arrival, he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and was later flown out via air ambulance to the Cayman Islands for further treatment.
According to the government’s Chief of Staff, test results show there is a problem with Browne’s sternum which causes it to become inflamed, and subsequently the severe pains.
The sternum, or breastbone, is a long flat bone located in the center of the chest. It connects to the ribs via cartilage and forms the front of the rib cage, thus helping to protect the heart, lungs and major blood vessels from injury.
