Bernadette Chirac, wife of France's President Jacques Chirac, waves as she leaves the Val de Grace hospital in Paris September 4, 2005. Jacques Chirac was in a Paris military hospital on Saturday with a blood vessel problem that has affected his vision and will keep him there for up to a week. The 72-year-old French leader was on good form after being admitted on Friday but has cancelled all appointments for the coming week, including talks with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder on Tuesday, officials said.
