“Today is the Day of my Army and the sun dawned beautifully. I send a huge hug to my soldiers and my beloved people,” continued from Cuba the president, whos  first act in the morning was to sent four messages from this network, in which he did not write since last June 4.

Chavez, 56, underwent emergency surgery for a pelvic abscess on June 10 in Havana, where he was an official visit.

Rumors about his health have multiplied in these days in Venezuela due to the unprecedented silence and lack of information about his true condition. According to information published by The Miami Herald, based on U.S. intel sources, Chjavez is critically ill, he is not dying but his health is in a critical situation.

On the other hand,  Chavez could be back in Venezuela in “10 or 12 days,” said on Wednesday his older brother, Adan Chavez.

According to Vice President Elias Jaua, Chavez remains in charge, he is informed of major issues of the country and participates actively in decision-making.

“I’m here with you in the hard working day. Onward to victory! We’re winning! We won!” Chavez wrote in another of his Twitter messages.

This Friday is celebrated in Venezuela the anniversary of the Battle of Carabobo, a confrontation between the troops of Simon Bolivar and the Spanish soldiers, occurred in 1821 near the city of Valencia (north).

The victory was decisive for the independence and the battle´s day became -over the years- as the Day of the Venezuelan army.

Thus, Chavez also used to compliment the military commander, Major General Euclides Campos Aponte, and all the “Liberation Army”.

“You know that the Battle of Carabobo is not over, it happens every day. From my trench I salute you with the patriotic singing: Glory to the brave people (Gloria al bravo pueblo) ,” Chavez concluded, quoting the first words of the Venezuelan national anthem.
