But her sister Shaimaa feels that her sister's condition is very delicate. She feels that it is unsafe to take her at this stage. Shaimaa alleges that Eman's pallor has turned blue and that she has also suffered a second stroke and had many epileptic fits. Shaimaa has shared a video of her allegations on Facebook and the hospital authorities aren't pleased. The doctors say that Shaimaa has to understand that Eman cannot be in hospital forever. She can now return and switch to rehabilitation therapy. Eman has a food pipe inserted inside her mouth as her three-year-stroke has affected her swallowing capacity. She is undergoing speech therapy, but the progress has been slow.

When Eman was brought to Mumbai, she was placed on a customised hospital bed that was then lifted using a crane from her Alexandria flat and put into a retrofitted cargo plane. A crane was also used to place the bed in an enclosure in Saifee Hospital's first floor.
