Still at Aosta's Parini Hospital (above) after breaking his wrist overnight, the Pope's condition is being updated in real-time on the wire's Twitpage....

Here, the latest:
Italian news footage shows pope walked inside hospital emergency room with his aides.

Pope insisted he get no special treatment at hospital. He waited his turn for X-ray, operating room.
Meanwhile, fresh word says the now-completed surgery to re-set B16's wrist was "successful," and the Vatican spokesman Fr Federico Lombardi SJ has categorically denied that B16 lost consciousness before the overnight fall that caused the fracture.
