sharing the memories
KMC 1973 (Kottayam Medical College Alumni 1973 Batch)
Jaya's Father in the Hospital
My dad has been in the hospital for over a week now. Initially, he was at Marian Medical center in Palai. Since his condition was critical at the time he was there for 3-4 days. Even though the initial diagnosis was acute posterior wall MI, later the diagnosis was confirmed as acute pancreatitis and cholecystitis secondary to gallstones. Once he was stable enough to be transferred, he was transferred to Amritha in EKM. Chithra has been of so much help in transferring and the ongoing care also. Her regular visits have made the stay easier for Appachan. Yesterday he was moved out of the ICU to regular room. He is gradually improving, but still pretty weak. please include him in your prayers.

Bad News - when it comes, it pours
This week we saw two of our families grieving over the loss of their loved one. First George and Philsamma lost their mother. Then Money learned that his sister died in India. There was a spontaneous outpouring of support for these two dear families of ours. We extend our condolences to the grieving family.
Dr. Thomas George's Daughter
Thomas Georges youngest daughter Annakkutty was diagnosed as ALL L1 type recently. She was taken to CMC VELLORE on March 13, 2006. KMC friends are organizing a prayer vigil for her. 1st Chemotherapy went smooth. She is doing fine from what we know.
Update: Thomas George left to UK two days back with his elder son. His wife had taken Annakkutty few weeks back. They plan to continue Annakkutty's treatment in UK at least for the next two years. Thomas George's wife is a Paediatrician working in UK. (Source: Jose Tom on April 30, 06)
Dr. K.R. Sanjeev Passes Away
Many people may not remember our classmate Dr. Sanjeev K.R. In fact many of us have not seen him after our internship. He died about an hour back. He was in the Kerala Health Service, posted at Quilon. Few minutes back Soman telephoned me and told Sanjeev was taken to Quilon General Hospital where he was pronounced as a 'brought dead' person and the body is being moved to the mortuary for post mortem, which may happen tomorrow. Asokan is at present at Calicut and will be back in Quilon tomorrow only for more details regarding Sanjeev. Sanjeev's wife is an Ayurveda doctor and her family has a hospital of their own. Sanjeev is from Chengannore. (Source: Dr. Jose Tom)
