Updates on Tun Mahathir from MalaysiaKini:
Former premier Mahathir Mohamad will rest for the next few days and will not attend public functions until after next week, according to his personal aide Sufi Yusof.
Mahathir was discharged last Thursday from the National Heart Institute after recovering from a heart attack.
Other than receiving a possible courtesy call by Kuwaiti prime minister Sheikh Nasser Mohammad al-Ahmed al-Sabah tomorrow, Mahathir is not expected to see anyone else.
“His scheduled is cleared for the next few days. There’s nothing major scheduled,” said Sufi.
He said the former premier still occasionally comes to the Perdana Leadership Foundation in Putrajaya.
“Today he was in the office. He still comes in once in a while,” said Sufi.
When contacted today, Mokhzani Mahathir said his father was “okay” and confirmed that he is unlikely to be in the public eye any time soon.
Prior to the attack, Mahathir was scheduled to speak at the Nikkei Conference in Tokyo, held for a week from last Monday. He was also to receive an honorary doctorate from Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, where he serves as adviser.
The attack, the second in seven months, was initially attributed by family members to exhaustion. Doctors said breathing problems were caused by lung congestion associated with a heart attack.
Released after chest physiotherapy and light exercises, doctors said Mahathir was not in any danger.
