On December 24, according to Brazilian media reports, Pele’s condition has deteriorated rapidly in the past few days. As his condition worsened, Bailey, 82, and his family were slowly coming to terms with the painful fact that the moment to say goodbye could come at any time.
After Pele’s relatives and the Brazilian government learned of Pele’s situation, they have already started preparing for the funeral.
According to a number of Brazilian and Argentine media reports, Pele’s health is in critical condition again, and he has been in the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo for three weeks.
The hospital’s report indicated that Bailey’s tumor had deteriorated and his kidneys and heart were malfunctioning, requiring intensive care. He will continue to be under the care of the necessary medical team on the general ward.
The Argentine media “Infobae” revealed that Bailey is currently receiving isolation treatment in the intensive care unit, his wife and two children are accompanying him in the hospital, and other relatives who are abroad have also returned to China one after another.
It is reported that Bailey can hardly speak, his physical condition has seriously deteriorated, and his lungs and kidneys have begun to fail. Bailey’s heart is still responding, but some complications are expected in the short term and doctors are working to prevent his condition from getting worse.
But Bailey, 82, and his family are slowly coming to terms with the painful fact that their farewells are near.
According to multiple media reports, Pele’s family and the Brazilian government are paying close attention to the king’s health and are starting to prepare for the funeral.
According to “Infobae”, they plan to hold a private wake for the family first, and then hold a larger public mourning ceremony at the Santos Stadium in a few days.
In 1956, the 16-year-old Pele made his debut at the Santos Stadium. It is presumed that Bailey’s remains will rest in a private cemetery.
On November 29 this year, Bailey was taken to the hospital due to swelling all over his body. When he was admitted to the hospital, he was diagnosed with various diseases. At the time, doctors’ reports indicated Bailey was hospitalized as they re-evaluated last year’s chemotherapy regimen for colon cancer and to treat his recent respiratory infection.
Since then, Pele’s condition has stabilized slightly. On the 18th of this month, Pele watched the live broadcast of the Qatar World Cup final in the ward, and congratulated Argentine player Messi on his social media account for winning the World Cup.
