Summer is here

Summer season is upon us, with the influx of tourists, local and foreign. Combine this with the usual rush of patients and have the makings of a very busy OPD and full wards.

Philip is currently away, in Bangalore, and Dr. Nitin Peters surgeon from CMC Ludhiana is covering for a while.

Stay tuned for updates in the future.

Jubilee celebrations

Jubilee retreat

A Jubilee retreat was held with Dr. K.O John from Oddanchatram leading it. He helped us consider our work and service from a Biblical perspective, one that we hope will guide us into the years ahead. We will need to look at our plans for the future in this light.

Ambulance service

We hope to initiate the first ventilated ambulance service in Himachal, a venture that will allow us to transfer ventilated patients safely to tertiary hospitals in Chandigarh and Ludhiana. This will be a first for this region. The ambulance is currently being fitted out and should be in Manali in early April.

Thanksgiving service

The hospital met for a thanksgiving service on 17th of April. Staff from all departments participated in songs, reading, skits and offering of praise and thanks for all that God has done for us in the years gone by.

We want to start the Jubilee with this attitude of constant thanks. Thanksgiving is a heart attitude and we want to hold it up always in gratitude for all the He has been to us.

Inauguration of new dental chairs

The much awaited dental chairs finally arrived to replace the older ones, which were on their last legs. We are very grateful to Ms. Sayal, and the church in Muscat, and to the Rotary club in Banglore, who continue to bless and support us.

Dr. Ghorpade, eminent maxillofacial surgeon and his wife Ms. Shashi were here to inuagurate the new dental chair on the 9th of June 2007. The department was spruced up and it was a real treat to see the spanking new chairs gleaming in the morning light on the day of the inuaguration. Dr. Christopher had said a word of prayer committing these facilities.

The first patient on the new chair was Menika, a 8 year old girl who need a root canal treatment on her 1st molar because of gross caries.

The new intra oral camera has enhanced the patients appreciation of their own personal dental hygiene.

Thank you all our friends and well wishers.

Incontinent for three years

A lady had come to us from Nepal, brought by her husband, complaining of leaking urine constantly for three years following the delivery of a stillborn baby.

On examination the posterior wall of her bladder was found non existant, and a huge vesicovaginal fistula was demonstrated. There was no bladder wall or even adequate urethra to consider a repair. She was anemic and infected. She was built up for surgery. A continent ileal conduit pouch was constructed from her bowel. She tolerated the procedure well and is now continent, with a urostomy that is is intubatable. We also were able to treat her and give her concession on her bill.
