LONDON - Begum Kulsoom Nawaz’s vital organs are working well and former premier’s wife even opened her eyes once after being put on life support, Geo News has reported.
Earlier in the day, doctors treating Begum Kulsoom told former prime minister Nawaz Sharif her condition was highly critical.
In a briefing to the Sharif family, the five-member board of doctors shared that Begum Kulsoom would not be taken off the ventilator for now and asked Nawaz to wait for another review of her condition, the timeline of which has not been given at the moment.
Sources said that the doctors informed Nawaz, Maryam and Shehbaz Sharif that Begum Kulsoom's condition has not deteriorated but has not improved significantly either since last Thursday.
Speaking to the reporters, Nawaz's son Hussain Nawaz requested the nation to pray for his mother's health and added that Kulsoom will be on the ventilator for an indefinite period.
The ex-prime minister's wife was admitted to the hospital on June 14 after suffering a cardiac arrest and has been on life support since.
Nawaz and his daughter, Maryam, reached London the same day to tend to Begum Kulsoom.
Nawaz did not talk to reporters while leaving the clinic on Tuesday whereas Maryam only commented that her mother's condition was "not too good".
