IJN surgeons happy with Dr M's progress

latest on Dr M. Press release by IJN at noon.

Institut Jantung Negara, 5 September.... YABhg Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad remains stable following close overnight observation by doctors and nurses at the Intensive Care Unit of Institut Jantung Negara.

Doctors are happy with his rate of progress which is as expected in post-bypass surgery. All his vital parameters, thus far, are also stable as anticipated.

Tun Dr Mahathir is still however, within the crucial intensive observation period and will continue to be warded at the ICU.

IJN will continue to issue updates as and when there is significant change in Tun Dr Mahathir’s condition. Visitations continue to be confined to immediate family members only.

Earlier, blogger Ganesh in Oz alerted me to this piece by BBC on 80-year-olds fit for heart bypass.

    Alhamdulillah - Amir

  2. Dr M a fighter
    He doesn’t easily give it up
    He knows what he must do
    Lying on his bed

    The fight for his country
    This is what he would do
    His unfinished business to amend
    The few mistakes he made

    If you look at him
    Don’t let his age fools you
    He has a sharp mind
    Eyes sharp as ever

    When he speaks everyone listens
    The wisdom he expounds
    The territories break its lines
    This is an icon we have
    Living amongst us
    For as long as we remember

    This is nothing to do with politics
    This is a leader I could accept
    He walks amongst us now
    Telling what he thinks ills the country

    God will be there
    He will make him strong
    And live with us
    For as long as God allow him
    To do the right for all of us

    Hope our old hero well soon. If you ask me to give one word to represent our old hero I would say TDM is simply "Perwaja".

    Dr. M, fight for your right...

    Today I went to the temple and ask the medium for a lucky ‘Hu’ for TDM, he cut his tongue and use the blood to write the lucky ‘Hu’ and the medium ‘communicate’ with God and according to God TDM will have no problem getting well.

    I will have to bring the ‘Hu’ to IJN tomorrow morning and burn it in the hospital surrounding and read out a prayer to bless TDM, a few of my friends are joining me too.
