Latin Star Walter Mercado Still Hospitalized


Sad news for Walter Mercado Shanti Ananda.

The famous Latin astrologer passed out in Puerto Rico this past Saturday and was hospitalized due to complications with pneumonia.

Unfortunately though, things don’t seem to be getting better for the 79-year-old.

Despite being hospitalized for all these days, he’s now going to be moved to a hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, which specializes in cardiovascular treatment.

Reveals a rep:

“Although he had gotten better from the pneumonia, Shanti Ananda’s blood pressure had been fluctuating during his hospitalization. They have taken him more as a precaution than as a necessity. Doctors feel more comfortable with him in the Cleveland hospital, which specializes in heart disease.”

The transfer was scheduled to take place by this morning as he’s expected to undergo a series of medical tests.

According to a statement from his office, Walter is said to be in good spirits and “wishes everybody blessings and prosperity in 2012.”

We wish him a speedy recovery and send him “Sobre todo, mucho, mucho amor!”
