1. Update on Revered Master's Health by Dr. Natwar Sharma – 27 July, 2012
Dear sisters and brothers,
Our beloved Master has been unwell since Sunday, 15 July 2012. It started with fever due to a Urinary Tract Infection, which resulted in a significantbut reversible kidney injury. With antibiotics, the kidney function started to slowly return to normal. Despite being on antibiotics, he continued to have regular and intermittent episodes of fever, which resulted in the use of additional medications.
On Tuesday 24 July, Master developed an infection in the left foot and in the chest. All the infections are now under control, but this has had a huge impact on Master’s health and as a result he is very weak. The breathing has now been temporarily augmented by a respiratory machine [BiPAP]. Master is now being fed through a Nasogastric Tube. The specially formulated diet will establish a good base for sustainable nutrition and health and will also hopefully make him stronger than he was before.
Master is responding to all of the above measures positively. He is now fully conscious and alert and on the way back to his normal self.
We are deeply thankful to the entire team of doctors who have worked tirelessly over the last 12 days to make this recovery possible. As per doctors’ readings, they expect that Master should be able to return to base-line health parameters that prevailed on 14 July 2012 in the next two weeks or so.
We request all of you to continue to pray for our beloved Master’s speedy recovery and for his good health and long life. Under the circumstances, please give him enough space and privacy to recuperate.
Dr. Natwar Sharma
