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.

Ambulance service

There exists no ambulance service for Manali at present. Sick and intubated patients have to wait for an expensive ambulance to arrive from Chandigarh, eight to nine hours away by road.

We hope to provide this service by equipping an ambulance and make sick and ventilated patient transfers a reality from Manali.

This will be a first, and we hope to see this happen in three months into our Jubilee year.

A miracle

Ram (name changed) was brought to our casualty unresponsive, without pulse, blood pressure or respiration, with the history of being electrocuted. His pupils were not reacting. Active resuscitation was begun immediately in casualty. His pulse returned, and he was ventilated over the next two days. Eventually he was weaned off the ventilator. He began to respond gradually and over a period of a month began to respond to command. This is an amazing recovery. We are looking at discharging him now, with the relatives taught to take care of him at home. We have seen some amazing recoveries, and we know this has to be God.
