SINGAPORE: Former Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew has been discharged from Singapore General Hospital and is resting at home.
A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office said the doctors are following up with him to optimise his anti—coagulation therapy.
This is in order to minimise the risk of further transient ischaemic attacks (TIA).
Mr Lee was admitted on Friday after experiencing a suspected TIA, which happens when blood flow to a part of the brain stops for a brief period of time.
The attack will result in a person having stroke—like symptoms, which clear in less than 24 hours.
A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office on Saturday said Mr Lee had recovered, but had been warded for observation.
In a post on Facebook, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said he and his family are very touched by the many well wishes they had received for his father’s recovery.
He expressed thanks for the support and encouragement.
