Successful Operation of Fr. Geo George

Dear Confreres,

Thanks for your prayers, the medical procedure conducted on Fr. Geo George was successful. By a process called embolization, the two veins in his brain that were in danger of breaking, were successfully blocked. Fr. Geo will resume his physiotherapy from tomorrow onwards. The doctors attending on him are confident that he will be fully alright in a couple of months’ time. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

In the Word,

Health of Fr. Geo George - Update

Dear Confrères,

Greetings from the Provincial House, Bandra.

We are very sorry to inform you that Fr. Geo George SVD (George K.V.) who has been residing at Kaduthuruthy and attending to the dubbing of the movie, Christaayan into Malayalam had a stroke yesterday and a haemorrhage in the brain.

Though the bleeding in the brain is contained presently, he has almost lost his power of speech. He is in the ICU at Caritas Hospital Ettumanoor, Kottayam. Doctors who studied the C.T. Scan are of the opinion that there may be a possibility of some permanent damage and that the recovery may take a minimum of three months. George seems to have made a remarkable improvement from the time he got admitted in the hospital (last evening) until now. We will continue to keep you updated.

Let us all earnestly pray for Fr. George's speedy and complete recovery.
