Prime Minister Keith Rowley, back from his US medical check-up yesterday, will be answering queries from the public in St Augustine tonight.

Rowley, who had medical checks in the US over the last week, returned at 5.30 am yesterday, the T&T Guardian confirmed.

He’ll host the third segment in Government’s public feedback forum—Conversations with the Prime Minister. Venue is St Augustine Secondary School.

Rowley’s medical involved follow-up to prostate checks he did in Los Angeles last August. Then, he’d returned with a clean bill of health, and advice to check up again within a year.

Rowley left September 1, returning yesterday after a one-day delay, detouring around his initial Miami route due to Hurricane Irma.

Tonight’s forum will likely shed light on Rowley’s US check-up, PNM sources said.

Meanwhile, Communication Minister Maxie Cuffie is progressing daily following his medical episode last week, says his wife Hermia Tyson-Cuffie.

Cuffie, who remains warded at St Clair Medical Centre’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU), had surgery last Friday.

His wife added yesterday, “I’m convinced it’s all the prayers he’s receiving that have helped him progress so nicely. Once the doctors and nurses are happy, I’m happy also.”

Also in the ruling party, former chairman and Senate President Dr Linda Baboolal was released from Mt Hope Medical Complex on Monday after undergoing triple by-pass heart surgery last week Wednesday.

Speaking in her usual strong voice, Baboolal said she didn’t have a heart attack but had surgery to prevent possibility, “I’m feeling alright, thank God, everything went well. I’m taking it easy, my daughter’s due home, my son’s doing the cooking and my husband’s at my side.”
