nelson mandela health family dying god update

Despite Nelson Mandela's small signs of improvement while in critical yet stable condition, his family isn't optimistic for a recovery. On the flip side, though, it sounds like they're optimistic about his passing — which is less about them wanting him to pass, and more of them putting their faith into God and his plans.

Whether you believe in a higher power or not, it sure is comforting to know that such a sad situation isn't breaking an entire family down. Nelson has been battling and intense lung infection, which is a lot to handle at 94 years old.

Here's what Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who was married to Nelson for almost 40 years, had to say:

nelson mandela hospitalized lung infection

Keep your thoughts positive!

Former South African president Nelson Mandela has been hospitalized due to another lung infection. He is currently in serious but stable condition.

The 94-year-old, first black president of South Africa suffered as his "condition deteriorated and he was transferred to a Pretoria hospital," the office of South African President Jacob Zuma reports.

The office of the current president has released a statement:

"The former President is receiving expert medical care and doctors are doing everything possible to make him better and comfortable. President Jacob Zuma, on behalf of government and the nation, wishes Madiba a speedy recovery and requests the media and the public to respect the privacy of Madiba and his family."

He has previously been hospitalized with lung infections in December 2012 and as recently as March 2013.

We hope Nelson is able to make it through this hospitalization!

Our thoughts and prayers are with him!
