Placido Domingo expects health improvement soon

July 10th, 2013 in News

MADRID (AP) - Opera singer Placido Domingo says he expects his health to improve soon, after he was admitted to a Madrid hospital with a blockage in an artery of the lungs.

Domingo has canceled six performances this month in the Spanish capital while he undergoes treatment.

The Three Tenors member said in a post Wednesday on his Facebook page, "I will be feeling much better soon."

He thanked fans for their support and said, "The saddest part of it all is being in my own city and unable to perform for Madrid's public."

The singer's representative, Nancy Seltzer, said Tuesday the 72-year-old is expected to make a full recovery after resting for at least three weeks.

Doctors say the pulmonary embolism was caused by a blood clot.
