FAISALABAD: Child prodigy Aarifa Karim Randhawa continued to startle the world on Friday, when she showed signs of life a day after doctors at Lahore’s CMH hospital gave up all hope for her survival after she suffered a cardiac arrest on December 22.
A day after her doctors suggested switching off her life support saying there was ‘no hope’; Aarifa started showing some brain activity and twitched her fingers, her father Lt Col (Retd) Amjad Karim Randhawa told The Express Tribune. The youngest-ever Microsoft certified professional, however, is still in critical condition.
The family has been receiving calls from across the world for Aarifa’s health and prayers for her recovery, her father said. After the latest development in her condition, doctors and experts at the hospital shifted their strategy on trying to save Aarifa.
