Dear Donors,
New year greetings.

Shivu continues to remain in Kauvery Hospitals and is expected to be there for a few more days.  His vitals continue to remain stable.

The doctors there have recommended against the PEG operation that we had informed you about earlier and hence that operation has been postponed for the time being.

On another front, we are readying the house for Shivu's arrival.  We have got a list of products from the home healthcare company that will eventually provide the trained nursing staff required for Shivu and are in the process of procuring them.

We will update  you all again when we have more to share.

We thank you for your continued support and wish you all a long, healthy and prosperous 2017.

Dear well wishers,
Shivu is currently in Kauvery in a room with a dedicated nurse. From a medical stand point, everything remains the same.  The doctors have requested that there be no visitors to his room due to fear of infection, so if any of you have planned on visiting him, kindly do defer your plans for some more time.

The doctors have suggested that we do a PEG (Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy) so that the nasal feeding tube may be removed.  This is a simple operation wherein they will put a feeding tube directly into the stomach instead of the currently operational Ryles tube which goes through Shivu's nostril. The PEG makes home health care easier, reduces the chances of reflux and will be more comfortable for Shivu in the long run.

The operation is likely to be done during the course of this week.

Thanks for all your continued support.

Dear Generous people,
Today we moved Shivu from Apollo's High Dependency Unit to Kauvery hospital, into a room with one monitor(for pulse, BP, oxygen saturation,...), oxygen and a round-the-clock tracheostomy nurse.  While in Apollo he shared his quarters with the late chief minister (two rooms away), here at Kauvery he entered while another ex-CM was getting discharged.  Luckily, there were no issues and thanks to the efficient staff at Kauvery, he is now well settled in his new room.

We take this opportunity to thank Apollo hospital and all the Doctors and staff there for the wonderful care they have provided for Shivu.  

Tomorrow, there will be an assessment by the Doctors at Kauvery as well as visiting neurologists to see how long he needs to be in Kauvery before he can be moved home.

We are all eagerly looking forward to Shivu moving back home and into the loving embrace of his friends and family.  

Thank you for your thoughts, wishes, prayers and good will.
