Tun Dr Mahathir in ICU: Condition stable

I was quite shaken earlier to hear confirmation of this news. In the begining it seemed bleak... so little information, conflicting reports. The first sms I got was that Tun M in ICU. Critical.

I immediately made calls and sent texts... no reply from Tun's aide. Then a message from one of TDM's staff saying that yes he was in Intensive Care because of breathing difficulties.

More frantic calls... painstaking texts... slow because my vision was blurred by tears I couldnt control.

Then finally, word from inside. Tun is stable. Resting. Breathing difficulty probably because of exhausting activities amidst scorching heat in Bukit merah and Langkawi. Tun is expected to return to KL tomorrow, but for now he is being observed for 24 hrs. A few minutes ago, another text from an aide of tun's saying that the old warrior is off the respirator and is now breathing on his own. Alhamdulillah.

We ask all friendly Malaysians of whatever faith to pray for Tun Mahathir's speedy recovery.

Me... For now I still cannot contemplate a world without Ayahanda Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. (Ya Allah panjangkanlah umur Tun Dr. Mahathir dan umur Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, dan berikanlah kudrat dan semangat kepada kedua-dua mereka untuk terus berbakti kepada negara, dan membantu rakyat Malaysia. Amin)
