Chavez is conscious and fully aware of how 'complex' his condition remains three weeks after difficult cancer surgery in Havana, the Venezuelan president's handpicked successor, Vice President Nicolas Maduro, said Tuesday. Maduro, who is returning to Caracas today on January 2, provided no specifics about Chavez's condition but defended the government's efforts to keep the public abreast of the president's health. Chavez underwent his fourth cancer-related surgery three weeks ago in Havana and has been bed-ridden ever since. AFP PHOTO/LEO RAMIREZ (Photo credit should read LEO RAMIREZ/AFP/Getty Images)
