Dr M regaining appetite and his sense of humour, says Marina

PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s health is improving, says his daughter Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir.

She said her father’s appetite was improving and he could even joke around with family members.

“The health condition of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has shown improvement.

“He had an improved appetite and had a good time with family members who were by his side at the National Heart Institute (IJN).

“Dr Mahathir was also informed of the well wishes delivered by so many people, including foreign leaders and the public,” Marina said in a statement on Tuesday (Jan 25)

She said Dr Mahathir and the family were very touched and thanked everyone who prayed for his speedy recovery.

“Dr Mahathir appealed to the public not to be too worried about his health condition.

“He will continue to receive treatment at IJN under the supervision of local experts.

“For now, IJN still does not allow visitors other than the immediate family,” she said.

Media personnel have been staking out in front of IJN since Saturday (Jan 22) following news Dr Mahathir had been readmitted.

In a statement on Saturday (Jan 22), Marina said Dr Mahathir was in stable condition.

He was recently admitted to IJN on Jan 7 to undergo an elective procedure and was discharged on Jan 13.
