Pope Resting after Tracheotomy

Pope John Paul II is resting following a tracheotomy and is eating normally, according to the Vatican. The pope was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning with flu symptoms and breathing difficulties.

According to a spokesman, the pope has been advised not to speak. He is expected to require a longer hospitalization than his 10-day stay for similar symptoms earlier this month.
