The hospital said she had been allowed home leave from the hospital on a regular basis over the past fortnight to spend time with her father Ziauddin, mother Toorpekai and younger brothers, Khushal and Atul. Her family will be able to stay in the country for up to five years after her father was appointed to a diplomatic post at Pakistan's consulate in Birmingham. Yousafzai is due to be to be readmitted in late January or early February to undergo cranial reconstructive surgery as part of her long-term recovery.
Dave Rosser, medical director at University Hospitals Birmingham, said, "Yousafzai is a strong young woman and has worked hard with the people caring for her to make excellent progress in her recovery." He said that following discussions with Yousafzai and her medical team, they decided that she would benefit from being at home with her parents and two brothers.
"She will return to the hospital as an outpatient and our therapies team will continue to work with her at home to supervise her onward care," he added. She was admitted to the hospital on Oct. 15 last, six days after she was shot in the head by Taliban for "promoting secularism" by championing girls' education. She had also highlighted Taliban atrocities in the Swat valley and, when younger, kept a diary for the BBC's Urdu service. The incident had provoked worldwide condemnation.
