Former royal couple takes stock of Paras’s health in Bangkok hospital
Former king Gyanendra Shah and queen Komal on Wednesday visited Samitivej Hospital in the Thai capital Bangkok where their son, former crown prince Paras Shah, remains in a state of coma following a major heart attack on February 19.
The former royal couple along with Paras’s three children and a Brigadier from the Army Hospital in Chhauni headed straight to the hospital after reaching Bangkok at around 7 pm yesterday evening.
The former king took stock of his son’s health while consulting with the doctors involved in Paras’s treatment regarding whether there has been any improvement in his health condition.
According to reports, the doctors said there has been only slight improvement in the health condition of the former crown prince and that an MRI of his brain is needed to determine future course of treatment.
The hospital also issued a medical update of the ex crown prince Paras on Wednesday, saying that “some spontaneous movement of the limbs has been observed.” The hospital said the pressure and heart rate are maintained without the need of medication, but Paras’s health remains “critical but stable”.
Before flying to the Thai capital on Wednesday, the former king thanked the crowd of mostly pro-royalists and well-wishers gathered outside the Departure Hall of Tribhuvan International Airport for the support and concern they have shown over his son’s health. Nepalnews.com
