Argentina's President Fernandez returns to public eye after latest illness sidelines her.
NNA - Argentina's president has made her first public appearance since being hospitalized more than three weeks ago for a bacterial infection of the colon. President Cristina Fernandez entered a Buenos Aires hospital Nov. 2 and has continued her recovery at the presidential palace since being discharged a week later. Fernandez spoke Tuesday at the annual meeting of the Argentine construction chamber. Doctors say she suffered an inflammation of the sigmoid colon. It is the latest in a string of health issues for the 61-year-old leader, who has accumulated more than a month of convalescence this year for such conditions as sore throat, hip pain and a sprained ankle. Last year, surgeons removed a blood clot from her skull. In 2012, her thyroid gland was removed after an erroneous cancer diagnosis-- AP. ===================N.AF/L.Y.R
