Dr M Discharged From IJN

According to Malaysiakini, former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad was today discharged from the National Heart Institute (IJN), seven weeks after undergoing his second coronary bypass operation.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was discharged from the National Heart Institute (IJN) this morning, 47 days after undergoing a second coronary bypass operation on Sept 4.

A cheerful-looking Dr Mahathir waved to the public at the IJN as he walked out of the VIP ward at 10.20am in the company of his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamed Ali, his children and doctors to a waiting car.

Dr Mahathir will continue with his physiotherapy exercises at home and come for periodic check-ups at the institute as part of his post-surgical rehabilitation process, it said.

His daughter, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, told reporters at the IJN lobby that doctors have advised her father to rest at home and continue with the rehabilitation programmes and follow-up treatment.

"My father is happy to be able to go home. He wants to be in a different environment and wishes to rest," she said, adding that the family would hold thanksgiving prayers soon.

Marina said Dr Mahathir expressed his gratitude to IJN staff who took care of him during his stay at the country's premier heart centre.

"We have agreed to discharge Tun Mahathir now that he has fully recovered," said Tan Sri Dr Yahya Awang who headed the panel of heart surgeons who operated on the former prime minister.

I'm very glad that he's getting better. Hope he'll very 100% ok. He should live long to see the destruction he created and being continued by his appointed succesor. Beliau patut hidup lama untuk menyaksikan kemusnahan dan kehancuran bangsa Melayu akibat budaya politik yang beliau bangunkan. If we are very lucky maybe he will realise that, put aside his big ego and DO SOMETHING while he's alive.
