Tun Mahathir visits sister warded at Alor Star hospital

(The Star) ALOR STAR: Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is recuperating from a mild heart attack, visited his elder sister who is warded at the Kedah Medical Centre here.

The former prime minister appeared sad as he hugged his 85-year-old sister Habshah Mohd Iskandar who is suffering from lung infection.

His wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali accompanied him.

Cardiologist Datuk Dr Amin M. Sani, who is treating Habshah, said she was responding well to antibiotics.

“Her condition is very stable. She should be able to go home within a week,” he said.

Habshah was admitted to the hospital on Nov 20.

Dr Mahathir, 81, also visited one of his chefs from The Loaf bakery in Langkawi who was also warded at the same hospital after a recent accident.

He then returned to Kuala Lumpur in the afternoon.
