The release also said that the ‘lung de-congestion treatment is still continuing’ and all other measures like “nutrition, support therapy and passive physiotherapy” are still being conducted regularly.

Jayalalithaa’s supporters as well as her political advisories have wished her a speedy recovery. MDMK leader Vaiko on Saturday visited the hospital and expressed confidence that she would return home in good health.

On Friday, Tamil Nadu Governor CH Vidyasagar Rao had held a meeting at his residence to take note of the general administration in the state.

The meeting came after the hospital released a detailed bulletin on Thursday, in which it mentioned that Jayalalithaa required to stay for a longer duration in the hospital giving rise to speculations that an interim CM may be appointed in the state.

    Polonium poisoning like Sunanda Pushkar. You all know the results. Now what is happening is to irradiate her to prevent the news leaking out. It takes time, isn't it. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;There are only 2.5!years left. Before that everything need to be done to establish in TN. The strategy is to let her go and after her break AIADMK and make a major group first align with BJP and then merge the group with BJP. That is the only way BJP can establish itself in TN, even in a minuscule amount. Scoundrel SoBrahMINION Swamy's idea to bRAWminions. And you see the execution right now.

      Before anything happens, there should be a Amma Funeral Parlour opened in her honor!

        This is an unfair comment! Absolutely inhuman. I am no Jayalalitha fan. I would like to look at her as a human being and the suffering she is going through!

          From the way she is being treated one can guess that she is hardly conscious if not in coma. It is strange that no minister has been given officially the charge of the chief minister. One good thing is, the British made IAS officers are keeping the official machinery running.

                What is better than expecting to end the journey remembering one who you love so much? What is wrong in it? If you think your love is pretend than its a different matter!

                  The respiratory support system is been closely watched and adjusted, means normal breathing system is minimum; Lung de-congestion means there is a severe pulmonary problem; Pive physiotherapy indicates that legs and hands are not functioning as usual, the hospital bulletin itself is sufficient to say all is not well. Let us pray some good happens.

                        ALL ALLEGATIONS ON HER HEALTH ARE ONLY MISCHIVOUS AND NOT ON GOOD INTENTIONS.

                          YOUR GUESS MAY BE TRUE. MANY PEOPLE RATHER THAN WISHING HER WELL, UNNECESSARILY INDULGES IN NUMEROUS ALLEGATIONS. THE APPOLLO HOSPITAL REPORT CLEARLY INDICATES THE FOLLOWING. (1) SHE IS ON RESPIRATORY SUPPORT. (2) FOOD IS ADMINISTERED THROUGH TUBES. (3) SHE IS HAVING LUNGS INFECTION. (4) SHE IS ON PHYSIOTHERAPY. (5) MACHINES ARE USED FOR MAKING BODY MOVEMENTS. (6) AN EXPERT ON "CRITICALLY ILL PATIENTS" FROM LONDON IS REGULARLY ATTENDING ON HER. (7) A TEAM OF 3 DOCTORS ARE COMING FROM SINGAPORE TO TREAT HER. (8) THREE DOCTORS FROM "DELHI AIMS" ARE REGULARLY ATTENDING ON HER (9) ALL THESE ARE OVER AND ABOVE THE REPUTED "APOLLO HOSPITAL TEAM" . APPOLLO HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT REGULARLY ISSUES HEALTH BULLETIN, STATING THAT SHE RESPONDS, MAKING PROGRESS AND REQUIRES A LASTING TREATMENT. WHAT ELSE IS REQUIRED ? ALL THIS HUE AND CRY ARE OUT OF MISCHIVOUS IMMAGINATIONS.

                                As long as our CM is taken care of, we are happy. We are extremely grateful to all the respected Doctors. Our Chief Minister spent all her well being in support of our State. Now onwards, she should consider how important the health will provide all the energy in serving the citizens of Tamilnadu. We pray for your speedy recovery. Jaihind Venkataraman Subramanian USA
