Doctors and nurses at the Apollo hospital organised a condolence meet and shared how Jayalalithaa’s mood changed from ‘funny’ to ‘occasionally difficult’ during her 75 day-long stay at the hospital.

 

These are some of her last moments at the hospital

 

 

Jayalalithaa had named three nurses who were incharge of taking care of her “King Kong”

 

 

She made an effort to eat whenever the nurses were around

 

Jayalalithaa wanted to get better and thus used to eat and follow whatever the doctors used to say rigorously

 

Her cook used to prepare food for her during her stay at the hospital, which included – potato curry, rice, upma, pongal

 

Jayalalithaa used to share skincare tips with the nurses

 

She used to ask all the nurses to take care of themselves despite their busy schedule

 

Sometimes, she used to ‘order’ nurses to correct/change their hairstyles

 

Jayalalithaa did not like Apollo hospital’s coffee. She once told the staff to come home with her so that she could let them have the best tea from Kodainadu

 

She used to watch the news on TV and smile

She had promised the staff that she would take them to the TN assembly after getting better

 

Doctors also recollected how positive and spirited she was, even during those tough days at the hospital.
