Premier Menachem Begin will be discharged from Hadassah Hospital tomorrow, 15 days after he was admitted suffering from a small blood clot in a vein leading to the brain. Dr. Sylvan Lavie, one of a team treating the Premier, told reporters yesterday the Premier had been ordered to rest for one week at home and then to return gradually to his regular work schedule. Lavie said Begin would have to take anti-coagulant treatment, in the form of one pill per day, for the next three months. He said the impairment of Begin’s vision might take several months to clear up.
