A message from Angelee Deodhar

Dear All,

Please forgive the common mail. I am writing from Chandigarh.

My husband, Dr. Deodhar, had an external fixation operation of the left knee on Tuesday, 16th June at Fortis Hospital Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. His operating surgeon was Dr. Rajgopal.

He received 5 bottles of blood and was kept in the Intensive Care Unit till last night when he was transferred to the room...Room 105. He is on intravenous antibiotics.

His left leg has now become straight, as there is no knee joint, and the bones of the leg have been fused together. The external fixators will remain in place for 3 months, at the end of which they will be removed.

It has been a very long, painful, tedious, and frustrating three and a half years since his first bilateral knee surgery. I am grateful to all of you for your kind messages of support and for your prayers, which have given us the strength to carry on.

Right now his brother, Vasu, is looking after him in the hospital. We hope we can bring him to Chandigarh in a week's time.

We know you are all with us in thought and prayer. I will keep you informed,

With loving prayers for you and your loved ones,
