Egypt's jailed former president Hosni Mubarak is not in a deep coma, an official medical source has told Ahram Online.

The next 72 hours will be critical but he could survive, said the source. However, he may not regain all his intellectual and physical capacities and may have impaired concentration and vision due to a stroke.

Mubarak's sons, Gamal and Alaa –  who are currently in prison where they remain under investigation for financial corruption charges –  have been issued a permit allowing them to visit their father at Maadi Hospital. However, the time spent processing the permit may mean they do not arrive at the hospital until five or six o'clock Wednesday evening, added the source.

Yes, of course! The next 72 hours are "critical" depending on who's going to win
Yes, we know. Mubarak will most likely pull out of his "clinical death" if Shafiq wins. But if Morsi wins poor Mubarak will be "impaired" for life. What a bunch of BS. Too real for Hollywood!

Hmmmmm.....
It would appear that in the end Mubarak finally was able to do whatever was necessary in order to be moved out of Torah.
