The artist’s wife said in statements to Al Arabiya: “His condition is stable, and he responded to me yesterday, Tuesday, when I asked him to hold my hand, and he did, in a sign that he hears me. He has been in a coma for 14 days, during which he was subjected to cardiac arrest for 21 seconds, He was revived 5 times.
And Aida Al-Otaibi continued: “The tests that were conducted on him recently proved the integrity of the brain, and there is no clear reason for his health relapse. I rule out that the reason is psychological, because my husband loves life, and he was always optimistic, as he was planning to travel after his recovery.”
She added: “The kidney transplant operation was scheduled to take place for my husband in the month of Ramadan, but his unstable health condition delayed the operation, because the lack of movement and lack of exercise contributed to muscle weakness and his body could not stand it.”
