Mother Teresa Eager To Leave Hospital


As Mother Teresa’s bronchial pneumonia started clearing up and her heart gained more strength Friday, she picked up the telephone and spoke to her Missionaries of Charity home.

“Hello sisters, this is Mother Teresa. I am coming home tomorrow. Get things ready and make arrangements for an ambulance to pick me up,” doctors quoted her as saying.

That surprised doctors, who told her that she needs to stay in the hospital for a few more days.
