The tweet, by Azmin’s daughter Farah Amira, mentioned that Siti Hasmah was with Shamsida Taharin, the wife of the PKR deputy president, at a hospital room but it did not say which hospital it was and what surgery the minister had undergone.

“A picture paints a thousand words, they say.

“Indeed, Abah @AzminAli in high spirits, from the care, love and affection showered on him by Tun Dr Siti who came to visit after Abah’s surgery.

“Such a gem of a person. Tun Dr Siti is the embodiment of kindness, gentleness, love and compassion as I can see for myself in the way she cares for Abah @AzminAli,” Farah tweeted yesterday.

According to Farah, her father cannot wait to get back to work.

“Oh dear, I’m not sure if this is a good thing… All this cheering up has put Abah @AzminAli in such high spirits that he says he just can’t wait to get back to work,” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, Azmin, in a tweet, expressed his thanks and appreciation to those who had visited him, including Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, Dr Afif Bahardin and Hilman Idham.
