JERUSALEM (CNN) -- Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's condition has worsened, Israel Radio reported Saturday.

The news outlet said it based its conclusion on a CT scan conducted Saturday morning that indicated Sharon's condition was worsening.

Test results showed serious damage to Sharon's digestive system, Israel Radio reported.

Sharon suffered a massive stroke January 4 and went into a coma.

He underwent a gastrostomy to insert a feeding tube in his stomach February 1.

Yael Bossem-Levy, spokeswoman for Hadassah Ein-Kerem hospital said in a statement that in light of the damage, it was decided to immediately operate on Sharon.

"Sharon's life is in danger," Bossem-Levy told The Associated Press in a phone call after the statement was issued. His condition is now "very serious, or critical," she said.

Sad but I suppose he's had a good innings.
