On the mend? I don’t think so. He trundled slowly down the red carpet with Premier Wen and his left side still shows permanent stroke damage with a sloping shoulder and drooping mouth. It looks like Kim skipped most of the walk down the red carpet with Wen as he waved to the crowds.I responded to Sonagi that KJI appears fatter than in past months, his left arm is mobile and has energy, he was walking and standing during the ceremony rather than sitting. This is notable because it is quite a different impression of how he has been depicted in past months and, moreover, the nature of the photos and video resists claims of having been photoshopped. I would say he definitely appears to be on the mend (i.e., "getting better, recovering") from past stroke damage.
That doesn't mean he will recover 100% (note than I mentioned his gnarled left thumb), but I think it does mean he shouldn't be written off so quickly. Frankly, though, while I'm more familiar with stroke recovery or lack thereof, I have no direct knowledge of how someone with pancreatic cancer would appear and behave. But since KJI now appears to be heavier than some months ago, I wonder if that diagnosis is accurate or merely speculative.
I'm certainly not cheering on KJI. I'm only pointing out that wanting him dead isn't enough to kill him. I think a lot of the speculation about his health that we saw in the past year may have been exaggerated.
