Cabinet minister Denis Lowe tonight remained in serious, but stable condition, at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH).
Up to Press time the precise nature of Dr Lowe’s illness was still uncertain, though it is understood he was suffering with respiratory problems. He is also known to have been suffering with his kidneys.
Lowe, who spent the day in the Medical Intensive Care Unit where he was visited by family, friends and Cabinet colleagues, was rushed to the Accident & Emergency Department at the QEH on Thursday afternoon.
“He was more comfortable today,” said a hospital official.
Lowe, Minister of Environment, Water Resources and Drainage, is unlikely to have a quick recovery and Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is expected to announce an acting ministerial  appointment within the next 24 hours.
