Here’s what we did – Followup on the previous post

We decided to meet up at Koschy’s near M.G.Road on one of the Saturday’s. That Saturday was 2nd October 2010, Gandhi Jayanti. There were about 8 of us who turned up at Koschy’s. Susan also joined us. And her hand was really in a bad condition. After about half an hour discussion, we decided that she has to be taken to a hospital as soon as possible, get her treated and then take care of her while she recovers back. It was also decided that an account needs to be opened for her so that people can issue cheques in her name.

Susan was taken to a hospital the same day where she got her X-Ray done and took the surgeon’s opinion. After due examination, the surgeon mentioned that the bones in her hand were beyond repair (the elbow joint had completely been crushed), and the best way out is to ease the pain by performing Arthrodesis, where the bones between her lower and upper arm would be completely joined with each other (in an immovable way). She would still be able to use her hand for normal purposes, without having the ability to bend her hand in any direction (it would be fixed like an L joint).  Susan agreed to the above since her arm is extremely painful currently and because this is the only way out.

There were a few individuals who provided Susan with dog food, which would be good enough for the next 1 1/2 – 2 months.

An account has already been opened for her and the details has been circulated.

For the time being, we collected a little cash and to my surprise we were able to collect 10-11K immediately. That amount has already been deposited in Susan’s account now.

In case anyone who wishes to be a part of this process, can join bangalorecares at googlegroups dot com or can get in touch with either Akash, 9739204172 or Bharat 9900311496.
