KOTA BHARU – The health of PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, who is currently warded at the Intensive Care Unit of the Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital (HUSM) in Kubang Kerian here, is reported to be stable.
His son, Nik Mohamad Abduh said his father reacted more positively today, had more energy and increased sodium levels.
He said currently there was no need for his father to be placed in a normal ward as ICU treatment was the best.
“His treatment and development is monitored closely there. We don’t know when he will be discharged, but it’s important that he gets the proper treatment and enough rest,” he told reporters when met at the hospital here today.
He said his father had also been informed about the passing of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Abdul Aziz Al-Saud and responded by asking questions about the king’s death.
Meanwhile, PAS deputy spiritual leader Datuk Dr Haron Din said Nik Abdul Aziz could still remember him despite being ill.
“I was also told that he was taken off respiratory support,” he told reporters after spending 15 minutes visiting Nik Aziz.
The PAS spiritual leader, who is also suffering from prostate cancer, was admitted last Monday after his health deteriorated during the recent floods.
Nik Abdul Aziz, 84, also held the post of Kelantan menteri besar from 1990 to 2013. – BERNAMA
