LONDON: Begum Kulsoom Nawaz has regained consciousness in the London hospital, family sources have revealed.
Her health has improved after gaining consciousness and is currently responding through slight movement arms and head, her son Hussain Nawaz told media link on Friday.
Begum Kulsoom was put on life support after the former first lady was admitted to the Harley Street Clinic where she suffered a cardiac arrest. She has been on life support since then.
Hussain said that his mother opened her eyes after a month-long coma on the day Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz arrived in Pakistan in reaction to the conviction in Avenfield reference.
He said: “My mother, Alhamdulliah, opened her eyes, on the day my father and sister were leaving for Pakistan. She is now conscious but she cannot fully move her limbs and cannot talk but she recognises her family and responds. She can slightly move her head, nods and answers. It’s frustrating that she moves her lips but cannot talk. May Allah help her gain complete recovery.”
The doctors were not committing anything and believed that it would take a lot of time for her to recover, he said, adding that “Doctors are saying that she is being treated and she is responding. She is still on the ventilator.”
